A bus full of Hungarian tourists rolled over in eastern Egypt on Sunday, killing 11 people and injuring 27.

Egyptian police say the accident occurred on a highway in the Red Sea resort of Hurghada, about 500 kilometers southeast of Cairo. They say the bus was on its way to an airport.

The police suspect that the driver lost control of the bus while traveling at high speed.

Hurghada is a popular tourist and scuba diving destination.

Sunday was the 1st day of a Muslim holiday, and holidaymakers from around Egypt had flocked to the city.
