At least one tourist was killed and several others were injured after a hot air balloon carrying about 20 tourists crashed near the southern Egyptian city of Luxor, according to state news agency MENA.
All of those involved in the accident are believed to be foreign tourists. Luxor Governor Mahmoud Badr said a statement about the incident would be released shortly, according to AFP.
An Australian woman onboard the balloon reported on Facebook that she had "bumps and bruises" after the crash, and would "probably never set foot in another hot balloon ever again".
One of the main attractions is the Karnak temple, which dates back thousands of years.
Luxor has witnessed hot air balloon accidents in past years.
Other balloons had taken off around the same time but landed safely, the officials added, speaking on condition of anonymity in line with regulations.
In 2009, 13 tourists were injured when their hot air balloon struck a communications mast in Luxor and crashed.
In 2013, 19 tourists including three Brits were killed when their balloon caught fire flying over the city.
