DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Officials in Oman say two British women are dead and one British man is injured after being hit by a car in the sultanate.

The Royal Oman Police said on Twitter on Friday the crash happened in Salalah near its Haffa market. It said the driver of the car did not have a license and an investigation into the crash had begun.

Oman’s Tourism Ministry identified the victims’ nationalities. It said the British man hit was in a local hospital in a stable condition.
