Cairo: At least thirty people died in a bus crash in southern Egypt early on Monday, security sources said.

More than a dozen were also injured when two buses collided on a desert highway outside the town of Edfu, north of Aswan, the sources said. A third bus then smashed into the wreckage, the sources added.

Hundreds die and thousands are injured every year in Egyptian road accidents, often caused by reckless driving and poor roads.
