A gasolintruck and two cars crashed in northern part of Jordan today.
At least 11 kuwaitis died, many of them were children.
Terrible tragedy...

Could not find any englishspeaking media bringing this story yet.
They seem more worried about the rising oil-prices right now...
Found a link in english?
Please post it then...

EDIT: Changed headline...

Well it wasn´t easy.
But I finally found one in english:

The accident

"Ten Saudi and Kuwaiti nationals died while six others were injured when their two cars collided with an oil tanker on the Azraq road.
Civil Defence Department (CDD) sources explained that the tanker, which was carrying 40 tonnes of inflammable substance, was heading to Amman when it collided with a Saudi car carrying 11 passengers before hitting the other vehicle which had six people on board. The leaking fuel caught fire and entirely burned the Kuwaiti car and its passengers, the sources said.

But Agence France-Presse quoted a rescue official as saying that 11 Kuwaitis, mostly children, were killed in the accident."

If you should happen to find any english speaking articles about this story, please post it. I would like to get some details clarified here.
Like which conflicting version is the right one?
What caused the accident? Was it an accident at all?
I´ve heard that they sent investigators there to ... you know ...investigate or something...

Just one link in english, it has to be more by now...
It mensions a french one (I don´t speak french).
I got my original source from Norway, it was similar to the french version.

EDIT: Hindustan Times quoting Agence France-Presse : 11 Kuwaitis killed in road accident in Jordan
