At least 33 killed in Egyptian bus crash
Two buses have collided near a popular Red Sea resort in Egypt, killing at least 33 people, in the country’s worst road accident in nearly two years.
The buses were coming from opposite directions when they collided on a main road about 50km from resort town Sharm el- Sheikh on the Sinai peninsula.
Another 41 people were injured, some with fractured skulls, said a local emergency services official.
Two Saudis were among the dead, and four foreigners – a 20-year-old Ukrainian woman, a Yemeni man and a Saudi woman and child – were lightly injured.
Of the injured, 22 were still receiving treatment in hospital today.
