Six shot dead in archaeology row
A bus driver for a construction firm shot six workers dead and wounded six others as he sprayed passengers with gunfire near the Egyptian capital. A police investigation showed the shooting was due to a row between the driver and some of his colleagues who were excavating near his house looking for antiquities, a security official said.
