A head-on collision between a bus and a truck in Sudan’s West Kordofan province killed at least nine people and injured more than three dozen others, the country's state-run news agency reported Wednesday.


SUNA news agency said that the crash took place Tuesday night on a highway near the town of Abu Zabad, more than 600 kilometers south of the capital, Khartoum.


The report said the bus carried oil company employees while street vendors had boarded the truck.


The report gave no cause for the crash.
