Emergency plane to collect injured Russians from Egypt

Russia's Emergency Ministry is sending a plane to Egypt to collect six Russian citizens injured in a bus crash near the town of Sharm-el-Sheikh. Four of them are in a critical condition.

The bus was travelling from the popular resort to the country's capital, Cairo.

The vehicle overturned after the driver reportedly lost control on a sharp bend in the road. The bus caught fire, badly burning many of the victims.

In total sixteen Russians were injured.
