More than 20 Garment Factory Workers and Tourists Killed in Car Crashes in Egypt

24 Others were Transported to Local Hospitals after Sustaining Injuries in the Accident


More than 20 garment factory workers were killed in two separate traffic collisions in Egypt on Saturday.

According to medical and security sources, a minibus that was carrying workers and a truck collided on the roadway for unknown reasons in the Suez Canal city of Port Said.

The impact of the collision caused the minibus to flip over.

The collision happened shortly after two buses that were carrying tourists collided with a truck on a road near the Ain Sokhna resort on the Red Sea.

The authorities said three occupants of the buses were killed in the crash. They were identified only as an Indian man, two Malaysian women, a bus driver, a security guard, and a tour guide.

Twenty four other people are reported to have suffered injuries and were taken to local hospitals for treatment.

The authorities are yet to establish the cause of the accident.
