RABAT - At least 26 people, including several foreigners, have been killed in two separate road accidents in Morocco, police and medics said on Tuesday.
The first accident took place on Monday afternoon near Nador, in the northeast of the country, killing 10 people, with another 33 injured, five of them seriously.
The accident took place when a bus travelling between Rabat and Nador overturned because it was going too fast, according to a police source.
Separately, a bus crash near the port of Essaouira overnight killed 16 people, among them at least two foreigners, a medical official said.
Around a dozen people were injured in the accident, which police also said occurred when the bus from Agadir overturned, possibly due to speeding.
A local official told AFP that the toll from the accident in Essaouira, around 440 kilometres (270 miles) southwest of Rabat, could rise.
Moroccan roads are among the most dangerous in the world. More than 4,000 people die in traffic accidents in the country each year, according to official figures.
