The accident took place after the bus collided with a truck and overturned about 70 kilometers southeast of Cairo on a road leading to a Red Sea coastal city of Safaga, said the official, on condition of anonymity.
The circumstances of the accident were unclear and no other vehicles were involved. The victims were taken to hospitals in Suez, a city about 100 kilometers southeast of Cairo.
