Six Killed in Kafr El-Sheikh Car Crash

Six people were killed and one more was injured in a car crash on a coastal road in Egypt’s northern governorate of Kafr el-Sheikh.

A vehicle driving east from Alexandria to Damietta fell into a fish farm on the international coastal road.

Road accidents are a common occurrence in Egypt, being among the prime causes of death in the Arab world’s most populous country.

According to a report released by the Central Agency for Public Mobilisation and Statistics (CAPMAS) in June, the number of car accidents occurring in Egypt in 2013 rose by 0.4 percent when compared to the 2012 figure.
