Egypt official crime report blames Luxor balloon crash on human error - Xinhua | English.news.cn: Luxor's First Prosecutor, Mohamed Fahmi, said the final report by the Criminal Evidence Laboratory on this accident concluded that fire broke out in the balloon crash was caused by gas leak from one of the pipes that was installed by an unspecialized worker.

"Pilot and the maintenance engineer did not make necessary technical checks before taking off," Fahmi told Xinhua, adding that the result supports the prosecutor's decision to detain the pilot and the alternate airport director over charges of negligence and lack of precaution.
