Iran’s state TV says 18 people were killed and 14 injured in two separate road accidents in the country.
The report says both accidents happened on Tuesday.
The TV says 11 died after a minibus plunged into a ravine in a valley in the central province of Isfahan. It says eight were injured and were taken to hospital. They were reported to be in serious condition.
