Tourists Killed in Egypt Hot Air Balloon Crash

At least 19 foreign tourists were killed when a hot air balloon flying over Egypt's ancient city of Luxor caught fire and crashed into a sugar cane field Tuesday.

Tourists from the U.K., France, Belgium, Hungary, Japan and Hong Kong were involved in what is being called one of the world's deadliest ballooning accidents.
