Four women have been killed in a highway robbery attack on the Gushegu-Karaga road in the Northern Region, Sunday.\
The women were among about a dozen others who were asked by the robbers to lie on the road after their cash and mobile phones were seized from them.
However, another vehicle which was being stopped by the robbers refused to do so and ran over the women, crashing four of them to death and leaving several others injured.
Sources say bodies the four women have littered the streets, while several others who sustained injuries are being rushed to a hospital in Kraga for treatment.
The Karaga District Police Commander ASP Emmanuel Botwey says investigations are under way.
