Cairo: Two accidents on Egypt’s roads have killed at least 26 people in three days, authorities said.

That came just days after a crash on the same road also claimed 13 lives.
Accidents on Egypt’s roads killed more than 5,000 people in 2016, according to official figures, and authorities have moved to strengthen enforcement of traffic laws.
