Twenty-three passengers were injured yesterday morning in Takeo province when a minibus burst a tyre and veered uncontrollably off the road, police said.

The minibus had been travelling from Phnom Penh to Kampot province about 9am, he said. Police officials sent all the injured to hospital for treatment.

Cheng Chantra said the driver had been going fast when a back tyre of the minibus blew out, making it difficult to control.
