MUZAFFARABAD - At least 14 people were killed and four others were injured on Saturday when their minibus fell into a ravine in Pakistani-administered Kashmir, an official said.

The accident took place in mountainous Neelum valley, some 25 kilometres (15 miles) north of Muzaffarabad, the capital of Pakistani Kashmir, the region`s administrator Chaudhry Imtiaz told AFP.

"Fourteen people have been killed in the accident, four others were injured," Imtiaz said.

Pakistan has one of the world`s worst records for fatal traffic accidents, blamed on poor roads, badly maintained vehicles and reckless driving.
