Ten children killed in appalling traffic accident


RAMALLAH, (PIC)-- Ten Palestinian children were killed and twenty others were wounded, the condition of eight of them very serious, in an appalling traffic accident near Ramallah on Thursday.

Local sources said that the school bus was carrying schoolchildren when a huge truck rammed into it head-on, causing it to turn turtle.

They said that the accident took place on the main road between Jaba and Ram villages to the south of Ramallah, adding that the bus caught fire.

Palestinian Red Crescent society sources said that most of the casualties were evacuated to hospitals, but added that a number of bodies were still stuck inside the bus.
