CAIRO, Egypt: At least 16 persons were killed and 18 others injured in a collision between a school bus and an oil tanker in northern Egypt on Wednesday.

The collision took place because the driver could not control the bus while driving on the slippery road caused by torrential rains, according to the provincial governor Mustafa Hadhud.
