Egypt: Balloon crashes near Luxor killing 19 tourists BBC - February 26, 2013
British, French, Hungarian, Hong Kong and Japanese nationals are among 19 tourists killed in a hot air balloon crash near the Egyptian city of Luxor. The balloon was at 1,000 ft (300m) when it caught fire and plunged onto fields west of the ancient city. At least two people, including the balloon's pilot, are reported to have survived by jumping out of the balloon before it crashed. Officials in Luxor say they have now banned all hot air balloon flights.
