Bus crash on Egypt highway kills 12 near Suez
CAIRO, Sept 5, 2021 (BSS/AFP) - Twelve people were killed on an Egyptian
highway early Sunday when their bus overturned on their return from the
popular Red Sea resort Sharm El-Sheikh, medical and security sources said.
Thirty-four other passengers were injured and transported to the port town
of Suez for treatment, the medical source added.
No specific cause for the accident about 110 kilometres (70 miles) east of
the capital Cairo was immediately given by authorities.
Deadly road accidents due to driver error and dilapidated infrastructure
are common in Egypt. Some 7,000 people were killed last year in road
accidents, according to official figures.
