Police: Two Russian tourists killed, 20 people hurt in Egyptian bus accident

Two Russians were killed Wednesday and 20 people were hurt when a bus carrying tourists from a Red Sea resort to the capital rolled over, police said.

The circumstances of the accident were not clear but police said they suspected the driver had fallen asleep. No other vehicles were involved.

The Egyptian driver was among the injured, according to the police official, who spoke on condition of anonymity. The rest of those hurt were believed to be Russian.

The injured were taken to hospitals in the resort city of Hurghada, 40 kilometers (25 miles) away where the bus ride had originated, and in nearby Ras Ghareb.

Hurghada is about 500 kilometers (311 miles) southeast of Cairo.

The accident happened while Russian President Vladimir Putin was visiting Cairo, the first state visit by a Russian or Soviet leader in four decades.
