KABUL, Afghanistan —

A truck loaded with people and animals crashed in northwestern Afghanistan, killing 32 people, an official said Sunday.

Ahmadullah Alizai, the provincial governor of Badghis province, said that the incident happened in the Ab Kamari district of the province on Saturday.

He said the truck was loaded with people and animals and was traveling through a mountainous rural area when it crashed.

Such incidents are common in Afghanistan, where the roads are not well-maintained and safe driving practices are not always followed.
