Crash involving passenger bus in Egypt kills 32 and injures 60

A multi-vehicle crash in Egypt has left 32 people dead and 63 others wounded, according to the country's health ministry.

The pileup involved a passenger bus and other vehicles and occurred in the Beheira region on a highway linking Cairo and the Mediterranean city of Alexandria.

An oil leak from one car caused the collision with some vehicles catching fire, the state-run Al-Ahram newspaper quoted police sources as saying.

Footage circulating online showed many burned vehicles on the side of the road with firefighters extinguishing the fire.

Ambulances rushed to the scene to transfer the injured to hospital.
