Egypt road crash kills at least 24
Traffic accidents are common in Egypt, where roads are often poorly maintained
At least 24 people were killed in Egypt Tuesday when a bus ploughed into a truck parked on the side of a road, police and medics said.
The accident occurred near the entrance to the Sinai peninsula, home to beach resorts that attract tourists and workers from the mainland.
All those killed were Egyptians, the officials said.
Police said the bus carrying 50 people appeared to have been speeding and that the accident occurred at a time when road visibility was poor.
Traffic accidents are common in Egypt, where roads are often poorly maintained and traffic regulations are laxly enforced.
On Monday, 16 people were killed when two passenger mini-buses collided south of Cairo.
