At least 11 persons were killed and three were injured in a collision between a bus and a van in Narsingdi district of Bangladesh on Sunday.

Almost all of those killed in the Dhaka-Sylhet Highway accident were travelling in the van, BD News quoted police as saying.

Hundreds die in such road accidents in Bangladesh every year.

Bad roads, rash driving, poor visibility during winter due to fog and poor condition of vehicles cause most of the accidents.
