One of the young Israeli women killed after a jeep overturned in southwest Bolivia on Wednesday was identified as Ofir Hen, aged 22.

Another woman was killed and another injured as the group's jeep overturned in the Salar de Uyuni, the world's largest salt flat.

The women, in their 20s, were on a post-army trek.

A similar accident took place three years ago, killing five Israeli youth.
