Three workers were killed and 16 injured after the bus they were travelling in crashed in Fujairah, UAE.

The incident occurred at around 8am on Saturday on Al Qariyah Road 10km from Fujairah City. Fujairah Police identified the dead as two Bangladeshi men and a Sri Lankan man.

The bus belonging to a cleaning company was transporting 19 men from their accommodation to their work place in town.
