Fifteen workers with an oil drilling company were killed in a head-on collision between two buses in southern Kuwait on Sunday, the fire department said.
Fire department spokesman Colonel Khalil al-Amir told AFP that the victims, mostly Asian expats, were employees of Burgan Drilling, a private subcontractor.
Four other workers were hospitalised, some in critical condition, Amir said, without giving the nationalities of the casualties.
Investigations were under way to determine the cause of the accident, the report said, without giving further details.
The dead were migrant workers, including seven Indians, five Egyptians and three Pakistanis, Kuwaiti newspaper alqabas reported.
The collision took place in northern Kuwait where the buses were transporting the victims after the end of the working day.Last updated: April 01 2018 07:07 PM
