(CNN) -

At least 38 people were killed and 41 injured early Friday when two tourist buses crashed in northeastern Egypt, the country's semi-official news website Al-Ahram Online reported.

The two buses in the governorate of South Sinai were carrying an estimated 80 passengers, including 4 foreign tourists, the report said.

Search-and-rescue teams are still working to recover casualties at the scene, said Mohamed Lasheen, the undersecretary of the Ministry of Health in South Sinai.
