The bus transportation service ‘Go Bus’ might face suspension of license following an accident near the town of al-Alamein, on Egypt’s Mediterranean coast, killing six passengers and injuring 20 others.

GoBus will be paying out EGP 100K to the families of the deceased and taking care of hospital bills for the injured.

The company ‘Go Bus’ has released a statement clarifying that they are following accident investigations with the public prosecution.

The company further stated that the bus involved in the accident is in perfect condition, the speed limit has been set to 115km/hour in addition to guaranteeing the driver’s qualifications and experience, according to a statement published on the Facebook page.
