A bus full of Australian tourists overturned on a wet highway overnight, killing six Australians and injuring at least 24 others, including one woman who was trying to help the casualties out of the wrecked bus, Egyptian and Australian officials said Wednesday. "It was just awful," witness Barbara Kennedy said of the accident that took place in rain Tuesday evening on the road to Alexandria about 46 kilometers (29 miles) north of Cairo. The bus that crashed was one of a convoy of two carrying 80 police officers, emergency service workers and relatives from Victoria, Queensland and the Northern Territory. A nurse from Melbourne, Kennedy saw the accident from the second bus and tried to assist the injured.
