Nine people were killed and 12 were injured in two accidents on the Cairo-Alamein road on Saturday.

One accident killed five people and injured eight, while the other left four people dead and four injured, a health official told Ahram Arabic news website.

Deadly road crashes take place on a near-daily basis in Egypt, which is notorious for poor road safety conditions, badly maintained infrastructure and loosely enforced traffic regulations.

In 2015, a total 14,548 road accidents were recorded by Egypt's official statistics agency.
