At least 31 people were killed and 11 injured on Friday when a bus burst into flames after it collided with a truck carrying fuel in Pakistan's southern Sindh province, police said.

The accident occurred about 230 km (143 miles) north of the port city of Karachi on the country's main national highway.

Accidents are common on Pakistani highways and rural roads, where drivers often ignore traffic laws.
