Tour bus collision kills 33



Two tour buses have collided near Sharm El-Sheikh in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula, leaving 33 people dead and 41 injured, officials say.

According to BBC, One of the vehicles overturned in the crash which happened early in the morning about 50km (31 miles) from the popular holiday destination.


Ukrainian, Saudi and Yemeni citizens are said to be among the injured, some of whom are in a critical condition.

Egypt's roads and railways have a notoriously poor safety record.

Thirty ambulances were sent to the scene to take the injured to nearby hospitals and the local motorway was closed off.

Egypt's state news agency Mena, said one of the buses was heading from Sharm El-Sheikh to Cairo when it hit a bus coming in the opposite direction.
