Swaziland king Mswati III (C) arrives to attend the first day of the annual royal reed dance at the Ludzidzini Royal palace on August 30, 2015 in Lobamba, Swaziland. Umhlanga, or Reed Dance ceremony, is an annual Swazi cultural event where tens of thousands of Swazi girls and  travel from the various chiefdoms to the Ludzidzini Royal Village to participate in the eight-day event. A road accident in Swaziland killed several girls and seriously injured others who had been on their way to a traditional ceremony. The accident happened Friday night when their open truck smashed into a car on the road between the tiny kingdom's two main cities, Mbabane and Manzini, en route to the traditional Reed Dance.
