Algiers – At least 33 people were killed and 22 others injured when a truck collided with a bus which burst into flames in Algeria early on Saturday, authorities said.
The accident took place at 02:50 (01:50 GMT) near the city of Aflou, 400km south of the capital Algiers, the APS news agency said quoting the civil defence.
The bus slammed into a rocky embankment after the collision and caught fire, with most of the passengers who were asleep at the time burning to death, it said.
Road accidents kill at least 4 000 people each year in Algeria.
