MiG crash kills one on ground in Egypt's Luxor

An Egyptian army MiG-21 aircraft crashed Sunday near the southern city of Luxor, leaving one person dead and three others injured on the ground after the crew ejected, officials said.

The Russian-built MiG was conducting a routine training flight when it caught fire shortly after takeoff from a military airport in Luxor.


Both pilots parachuted out of the plane before it crashed onto a small village in the Al-Madamod area, killing one person, officials told AFP.

Three people were also injured in the accident and rushed to Luxor's main hospital.

Military and civil police forces cordoned off the area of the crash as authorities worked to determine the cause, officials said.
