Twelve were killed Saturday after a microbus collided with a lorry on the Wahat Road in south Giza. The accident left several others injured.
The accident reportedly occurred after the lorry driver lost control of his vehicle.
The incident came on the back of a major accident earlier Saturday in Upper Egypt's Assiut, where 50 children were killed when a train hit their school bus.
According to a report published in July 2011 by the Central Authority for Public Transport, road and rail accidents claimed over 7,000 lives in Egypt in 2010 — a rise of 7.9 per cent over the previous year.
