Pakistan bus crash kills 26; brakes fail on mountain roadA bus crash in northern Pakistan killed 26 people Sunday after its brakes failed on a winding mountain road, police said. Another 20 passengers were injured when the bus smashed head-on into a dirt embankment, said Abdul Wakil, a local police officer. Such road accidents are common in Pakistan, where motorists largely disregard traffic rules and safety standards on worn-out roads.
