    Background: ILGAZ, TURKEY

    A Turkish double wedding of two brothers to two sisters turned to tragedy on November 25 when a coach carrying them was in collision with a truck, killing all four newly-weds and twenty-six others. The double marriage had taken place at Bafra on the Black Sea coast. After the ceremony, the wedding party was en route to Istanbul for the reception when the accident occurred. The semi-official Anatolian News Agency also said about twenty- three others were injured when the vehicles collided in heavy fog at Ilgaz, north of Ankara. The drivers of the coach and truck were among those who died. Local officials accidents along Turkey's narrow highways are common occurrences, especially as inter-city coaches, a popular form of transport, often meet ancient and poorly maintained trucks along the country's narrow, winding roads.
