The number of people killed in a Sunday multi-vehicle road accident on Egypt's Dakhleya International Road in Alexandria governorate rose to nine while 11 were injured, Ahram Arabic website reported.
The injured were taken by ambulance to hospitals in Alexandria and are receiving the appropriate care, the health ministry spokesperson Khaled Megahed stated.
"The injured are all in a stable condition", he said.
Deadly road accidents take place on an almost daily basis in Egypt due poor road-safety conditions, badly maintained infrastructure and loosely enforced traffic regulations.
The country saw 25,500 road fatalities in 2015, while the total number of car accidents was 14,500, according to a study published by the state's official statistics body CAPMAS in August 2016.
According to a global status report on road safety in 2015, published by the World Health Organisation, Egypt ranked 16th for road fatalities among Arab countries and 109th globally out of 180 countries.
