Three people were killed and 19 others were injured after two buses collided on a highway in Tur Sinai, South Sinai, while heading to Sharm El-Sheikh city, Red Sea.

Two children, a six-year-old Egyptian boy and a six-year-old Iraqi girl, are among those killed. The third was a 30-year-old Egyptian woman.

The injured, 12 Egyptians and seven Iraqis, have been taken to the nearest hospitals.

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

The country's official statistics agency said in April that more than 11,000 road accidents took place in Egypt in 2017, down from around 15,000 accidents in the previous year.
