As many as 41 people suffered injuries when 50 cars rammed into each other due to thick fog near Turkey's Diyarbakir province Monday morning, Xinhua reported.

The huge rear-end collision occurred on the Diyarbakir-Sanliurfa highway.

"The temperature is two below zero and humidity is high," Diyarbakir Metropolitan Municipality said, adding that "the visibility has dropped to 50 metres due to thick fog".
