LUXOR, Egypt (AP) — An Egyptian security official says at least 19 foreign tourists were killed as their hot air balloon crashed near the famed ancient city of Luxor. The casualties included French, British and other nationals.
The official says there was a fire and an explosion and that the balloon then plunged from the sky and crashed into sugar cane fields west of Luxor on Tuesday. Luxor is 510 kilometers (320 miles) south of Cairo.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity as he was not authorized to talk to the media.
An Associated Press reporter at the crash site says he counted eight bodies as they were put into body bags and taken away.
