Egypt's Health Ministry said a car crash has left nine people dead and eight others wounded on a desert road connecting the capital Cairo and the city of Ismailia.

Ministry spokesman Khaled Megahed said the accident took place Saturday when a taxi cab crashed into a microbus, leading the cab to burst into flames. He said the injuries include first-degree burns and suspected concussions.

Road accidents are common in Egypt, often the result of badly maintained roads and poor enforcement of traffic laws.
