At least 19 killed in Egyptian minibus crash
Rescuers are searching for more victims in the water.
At least 19 people were killed and six injured Saturday when the minibus they were onboard flipped over in northern Egypt's Nile Delta, the Health Ministry said.
According to the Ministry, the minibus overturned into a ditch in the province of Dakahlia. Without providing further details, Egyptian media outlets claimed that the malfunctioning steering wheel was to blame for the accident.
In Egypt, where roads are frequently neglected and traffic laws are frequently broken, traffic accidents are common.
According to official data, the most populous nation in the Arab world saw about 7,000 fatalities on its roads in 2021. In one instance, a bus collided with a truck that was parked by the side of the road in central Egypt in July, resulting in 25 fatalities and 35 injuries.
