Seven Russians killed in Egypt bus crash

In Egypt seven Russian tourists have been killed in a bus crash and up to 17 have been injured according to the latest reports.

The bus was 10 kilometres south of Dahab, a resort town, on its way back to Sharm-El-Sheikh after an excursion to Jerusalem when it crashed in bad weather.

The trip to Israel was organised by one of the so-called ‘street companies’ that often work without the necessary licence and don’t have the right to qperate excursions of the kind.

The accident happened a week after 26 Russian tour guides died when their bus fell into a ravine in Israel.
