CAIRO: At least eight people were killed Tuesday when a bus carrying mostly Israeli tourists overturned near the northern Sinai resort of Nuweiba, security and hospital sources said. Hospital sources in the peninsula, home to resorts that are popular with Israeli tourists, said 39 others were wounded in the accident. Most of the victims are believed to be Arab Israelis, the sources said. The head of Magen David Adom, the Israeli equivalent of the Red Cross, said that ambulances had been posted at the nearby border with Israel to repatriate the wounded. The Israeli foreign ministry confirmed there had been Israeli casualties. The crash came a day after a passenger train rammed the back of another using the same track just north of Cairo, killing at least 58 Egyptians and wounding dozens. AFP
