Bus plunges off bridge in Egypt killing 14

Published: Updated:

Fourteen people were killed in Egypt when a bus plunged off a bridge after colliding with a truck, the health ministry said on Tuesday.

The accident in the province of Beni Suef, south of the capital Cairo, also injured 42 people, the ministry said in a statement. It did not specify when the crash happened.

Traffic accidents are common in Egypt, where many roads are not well-maintained and regulations are laxly enforced.
