18 tourists killed in hot air balloon crash
LUXOR, EGYPT - At least 18 foreign tourists are dead after a hot air balloon flying over Egypt's ancient city of Luxor catches fire and crashes into a sugar cane field on Tuesday.
The balloon fell 1,000 feet from the sky.
Initial reports say no Americans were killed. Only three survived of the crash -- two tourists and one Egyptian. Both were taken to a local hospital.
Bodies of the dead tourists were scattered across the field around the remnants of the balloon.
Officials say foul play has been ruled out.
