A reported 35 people have died and 20 injured in a multi-vehicle collision in Baluchistan province in southwestern Pakistan.

Police officials said the accident occurred when a bus collided with a truck heading in the opposite direction. A second bus and truck then piled up onto the two vehicles.

The buses were apparently smuggling Iranian gasoline and had diesel-filled canisters on board. All four vehicles subsequently caught fire.

Most of the victims were severely burned and transported to the nearby city of Karachi.
