Tourists watch Egypt balloon tragedy unfold

A tourist in a hot air balloon over Luxor, Egypt, caught the moment another balloon caught fire and plunged to the ground, killing 19 people.

The balloon plunged some 300m (1,000ft) to the ground in a field west of the ancient city.

Three British residents died in the crash, along with French, Hong Kong, Egyptian and Japanese citizens.
