DUBAI: A bus overturned and hit a lorry parked on the hard shoulder of a motorway outside Dubai yesterday, killing 15 Asian workers on board, state media said. The crash happened on Emirates Road, a busy route that connects the capital Abu Dhabi to the north of the United Arab Emirates, bypassing Dubai itself.
Police did not immediately specify the nationalities of the dead in the accident in the Dubai suburb of Ruwayyah. Expatriates, many of them Asian, make up the great majority of Dubai’s 2.2 million population. – AFP
