CAIRO — An Egyptian police official said 8 tourists were been killed and 40 injured when their bus flipped over near the Red Sea resort of Hurghada on Saturday.

The driver lost control because of high speed on a winding road and the bus rolled over several times, the official said Saturday, on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.

Egypt's official news agency confirmed that eight died in the early hours of the morning Saturday.

Three Russians and a Ukrainian woman were among the dead and the identities of the others were still unknown.

The seriously injured were airlifted to hospitals in Cairo.
