Public bus turns over on Al-Zaafarana-Ras Gharib highway, site of another fatal crash last year

Four people were killed and at least 47 others were injured in Egypt's Red Sea governorate when a public bus flipped over on a highway, Egypt's health ministry said on Sunday.
The accident took place early Sunday morning on the Al-Zaafarana – Ras Gharib highway.
The injuries include bruises, bleeding and fractures, the health ministry's secretary in the governorate, Mohamed El-Siyad Moussa, told Al-Ahram's Arabic news website.
The injured have been transferred to Ras Gharib's General Hospital.
Moussa added that six of the injured were transferred to Hurghada General Hospital due to their critical condition.
The same highway witnessed a road accident last year that killed four and injured 24.
Many Egyptians are currently traveling to Red Sea resorts for this week's Easter and Sham El-Nassim holidays.
