Bus Crash in Hurghada kills 14 Hong Kong tourists

This is tragic. Fourteen Chinese tourists from Hong Kong were killed and 30 others wounded in a bus accident in southeast Egypt, an Egyptian security official said. The bus, carrying the tourists from the Red Sea resort of Hurghada to the southern Nile city of Luxor, was speeding when it spun off the road, he said on condition of anonymity.

The group left Hong Kong on Friday for a 10-day trip to Egypt and the victims' identities were not immediately known.

The 30 wounded in the bus crash were taken to hospitals in Hurghada, one of Egypt's most popular holiday destinations.

injured amba bleed bus Jeez... Unless something was wrong in the bus that made this accident out of his control, this Bus driver needs to get hanged for his recklessness.
