Road crash kills 19 in Egypt's Luxor
14:42, 26 August 2014, 694

AKIPRESS.COM - police line Nineteen people have been killed and at least a dozen wounded in a road accident involving two microbuses in southern Egypt, state news agency MENA reported.

The accident took place late on Monday in a village called Al-Dabaiya in the temple city of Luxor when two microbuses collided, left the road and fell into a canal.

Al-Ahram Arabic news website said a car coming in the opposite direction was the cause of the crash.

Rescue workers were pulling victims from the water early in the morning.

Traffic accidents, which the government's census agency says claim 18 lives a day, are commonplace in Egypt due to badly maintained roads and railways and poorly enforced traffic laws. Egyptians have often complained that successive governments have done little to uphold the minimum safety standards to prevent frequent accidents.
