A truck driving at high speed slammed into a bus stop in a town south of Baghdad on Saturday, killing about 20 people and wounding 15, police said.
The truck hit a group of Iraqis in Al-Wahada, 35 kilometers (22 miles) south of Baghdad, as they were waiting for buses to the capital, said police Lt. Muhammed Al-Shemari.
He said it didn't appear to be an accident because the truck, an empty fuel tanker, didn't have a flat tire or any other obvious mechanical problems that would have caused the crash.
It was not immediately clear if the driver had survived, Al-Shemari said.
