Seven Egyptian workers died early Sunday in Jordan when their microbus collided with a truck, MENA reported.

According to the Jordanian civil defence media centre, two more Egyptians were injured in the incident that took place in Al-Mafrek governorate, 75 kilometres northeast of the Jordanian capital Amman.

The statement added that a third worker who holds Jordanian nationality is also among the injured.

According to the Egyptian embassy in Jordan, all Egyptian workers hail from the same village in Egypt's governorate of Fayoum.

Egyptian Ambassador to Jordan Khaled Tharwat told MENA that the embassy will ensure the swift transport of the bodies of the victims back home.

Thousands of Egyptians have worked in Jordan for years.
