Rain, flooding kills 12 in Egypt

Cairo, Oct 28, 2016 (AFP) - At least 12 people were killed in heavy rains and flooding in parts of Egypt on Friday, the health ministry said. The toll included six people who died when a bus overturned on a flooded road in the southern province of Sohag.

Four people died in the east's Red Sea province, the ministry said in a statement, without elaborating. Rains in the fall and winter cause flooding in Egypt, leaving areas with poor infrastructure the worst affected, almost every year.
