At least 26 people were killed and 18 others injured after a truck smashed into a bus Sunday in western Iran, state-run television reported. The broadcast said eight of the bus passengers were killed immediately and another 18 died from serious injuries at a local hospital. The passengers were returning to their homes in the central Iranian city of Isfahan from a pilgrimage to holy sites in neighboring Iraq, the TV said. The bus tumbled down into a valley after the truck strayed into oncoming traffic, hitting the bus on a bridge on the highway linking Ilam to Kermanshah, about 710 kilometers southwest of Teheran, the capital.
