DAHAB: Seven Russian tourists were killed when their coach overturned on a highway near the Red Sea resort of Dahab, according to a new death toll on Tuesday.

Eighteen other people were injured in Monday’s crash, including three Egyptians, a medical source said. Five of the injured remain in critical condition.

“The tourist coach seems to have crashed because of bad weather conditions, a security official told AFP. The coach was on its way south from Dahab to Sharm El-Sheikh.

Five of the dead were women.

The rugged Sinai coast along the Red Sea is dotted with resorts and is a popular vacation destination for tourists from all over the world.

The accident came less than two weeks after a public bus plunged into a canal south of Cairo, killing 64 Egyptians in the worst road accident in the country in decades.

In October, six Belgian tourists died and 26 were hurt in the south of Egypt when their coach crashed. -Agencies
