Twelve people were killed and 21 others injured on Saturday when two trucks collided in Tunisia's Sidi Bouzid city, according to the health ministry.  

The accident took place in the early hours in Al-Sharee when two trucks, including one carrying 30 people, collided, the ministry said.  

Colonel Mohamed al-Jawadi, head of the civil defense authority in the city, said the collision took place when one truck's tire exploded, causing it to veer to the opposite direction.  

The truck was carrying women who work in agriculture; a common way of transferring workers that lacks safety measures in the region.
