Early Sunday, 12 people were killed on an Egyptian highway, when their bus overturned on their return from the popular Red Sea resort, Sharm El-Sheikh.
According to medical and security sources, 34 other passengers were injured and transported to the port town of Suez for treatment.
No specific cause for the accident about 110 kilometres (70 miles) east of the capital Cairo was immediately given by authorities.
However, official figures show that deadly road accidents due to driver error and dilapidated infrastructure are common in Egypt, some 7,000 people were killed last year in similar road accident.
