Tragedy in Egypt

A tragic bus crash in Egypt the other day has claimed the lives of 6 Australians, 5 from Melbourne and one of those is from Sunbury, infact he lived about 400 metres from my place.

George Panayoutis was killed and his wife is in a critical condition in hospital, they were part of a cultural exchange group travelling to Egypt.

At least one if not two of my friends are on a similar tour at present and going by the radio interview done with Monica Gould today, they were on the same road last Friday.

My condolences go to all that have lost loved ones in this tragedy.
