Bus Crash Kills 19 In Saudi Arabia

At least 19 people have been killed, after a bus carrying Egyptian pilgrims overturned, in Saudi Arabia.

Nineteen people have been killed after a bus carrying Egyptian pilgrims crashed in Saudi Arabia, Egypt’s state-run Mena news agency says.

The vehicle overturned on the road between Mecca and Medina, Mena said.

There were 44 Egyptian pilgrims on board the bus when it crashed, the agency said.

The incident comes just days after 16 Palestinian pilgrims from the West Bank were killed when their bus crashed in Jordan on its way to Saudi Arabia.

The groups were both travelling to Mecca to perform the lesser Islamic pilgrimage, or Umrah.
