13 Children Among 51 Killed In Pakistan Twin Accident

51 people, including 13 children, were killed in two separate transport tragedies in Pakistan on Sunday.

41 were dead after their bus crashed in Balochistan province, while 10 students died in the boating accident in northwestern Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

As for the bus crash, senior administration official Hamza Anjum said 40 corpses were retrieved from the wreck alongside three injured, one of whom died shortly after.

The remaining two survivors were in "serious" condition.

Mass drownings are also common in Pakistan.

In July last year, at least 18 women drowned after an overloaded boat carrying about 100 members of the same family capsized during a marriage procession between two villages.

Also, in November, 20 people, including 11 children, were killed when a minibus crashed into a deep and water-logged ditch in southern Pakistan.

According to World Health Organisation estimates, more than 27,000 people were killed on Pakistan's roads in 2018.
