At least 10 people were killed and another two injured early Monday in a road accident in Iran, the state television reported.
The report said two cars collided on the road linking Dayhook to Ravar, some 900 kilometers (560 miles) southeast of Teheran. Police is investigating the case.
Iran has one of the worst road safety records in the world. More than 26,000 people lose their lives in road accidents every year. The toll is blamed on unsafe vehicles, disregard for traffic rules and inadequate emergency services.
