For reasons which are yet to be ascertained, the minibus carrying nine passengers collided with a truck. There were six fatalities: an Enelpower employee, 50-year old Carlo Covre of La Spezia; three Italians employeed by subcontractors; Giuseppe Ricci of the Swiss company Aczenta International of Zurich; Andrea Bergamini of the company Cosacem of Porto Scuso; Enrico Tento of the company Frag of Milan; and two Indians, a General Electric employee and the driver. The remaining three passengers were injured. Luigi Salvatore, an engineer with Frag, very seriously. They are all being treated at the Doha hospital.
