Five Israeli hikers on a post-army trip died in a car crash in Bolivia.

Two tourist jeeps collided late Thursday in Salar de Uyuni, a remote Bolivian salt flat, bursting into flames before their passengers could escape.

Thirteen people were killed, including four young Israeli women who had been friends since childhood and were traveling together after their military service. Another Israeli, a young man who had American citizenship, also died.
