At least 12 people were killed and five wounded on Sunday in a microbus-lorry crash in the south of Egypt, APA reports citing The Star.

"The accident took place at Aswan-Cairo desert road at the entrance of Farous village," said Ihab Hanfy, deputy to the health minister in Aswan Province.

 

The microbus carrying 14 people was rear-ended by a lorry carrying construction materials because of the high speed of the lorry's driver in foggy weather, he added.

The ministry of social solidarity ordered urgent aid to the families of the victims.
