BERLIN (AP) — Switzerland says six of its citizens have been killed in a road crash in northern Sweden.

The foreign ministry in Bern said Sunday that a Swiss consular official had been sent to the region to help the victims’ families, but gave no further details on the deaths. It said one person was injured in the crash.

Swedish media reported Saturday that a mining truck crashed into a minibus, killing six of the seven passengers in the bus.

Swedish mining company Kaunis Iron said one of its trucks had crashed head-on with another vehicle in the Kiruna municipality near the border with Finland early Saturday.
