A German woman and two Egyptian children were killed on Tuesday when a building collapsed in a residential neighbourhood of Egypt's southern city of Luxor, a senior security official told AFP.

"So far there is a German tourist who died along with two Egyptian girls," the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

The woman, who had been passing by the building the moment it collapsed at around 18:00 (1600 GMT), succumbed to her injuries soon after arriving in hospital, he said.

A German man who had been walking with the woman was injured and taken to the hospital. His relation to the woman was unclear, medical sources and other security officials said.

At least 13 other people were injured and taken to hospital, the sources said.

I was told it was one of the few remaining mud brick buildings. Maybe the recant rainfall was the cause, it happening at the same time.
