A bus has overturned while trying to pass a truck on a highway in southern Egypt which caused a collision that killed at least 20 people and injured three others.
Assiut Governor Essam Saad disclosed in a statement that the bus was travelling from Cairo when it turned over and was hit by the truck on a road in the southern governorate of Assiut, 320km (199 miles) south of the capital Cairo. Both vehicles caught fire.
Photos released by the governor’s office showed a burned-out bus with rescue teams looking for survivors. The victims were taken to nearby hospitals.
The health ministry said thirty-six ambulances rushed to the scene.
