3 Chinese Tourists Killed as Tour Bus Flips Over

Cairo Traffic During Rush Hour

Three Chinese tourists – two women and one man – have been killed in a road accident in Alexandria on Tuesday as their travel van overturned into a ditch after colliding with another bus.

According to Xinhua, the eight other passengers were also wounded, including the two Egyptians on board: the driver and the tour guide. They are currently being treated in Mostafa Kamel military hospital.

Guo Hualong, director of the counsellor affairs at the Chinese Embassy in Egypt, revealed that the group was on a tour organised by a Shenzhen-based travel agency.

The incident occurred on the Cairo-Alexandria desert road and was the result of speeding, according to Alexandria’s Governor, Mohamed Sultan. He added that the Alexandria security department has taken the required legal measures, and is now investigating the collision.

According to the WHO, Egypt loses around 12000 lives to traffic accidents every year, and although there are laws intending to regulate speed, Blood Alcohol Concentration, seatbelt-wearing, and helmet-wearing, they are poorly enforced.
