At least 14 people have been killed and 70 injured after a passenger train collided with a truck south of Tunisia’s capital, Tunis.

It’s not certain how many foreigners or tourists were on board this train.

The accident happened at El Fahes during the morning rush hour.

El Fahs is a town and commune located in the Zaghouan Governorate, 60 kilometers southwest of Tunis, Tunisia. Its population is approximately 19,000. It is located in the Wadi Miliane valley, surrounded by mountains, in particular the Djebel Zaghouan.

“The death toll could rise,” Tunisia’s transport minister Mahmoud Ben Romdhane told Mosaique FM radio in Tunia.
