Eight American tourists -- six women and two men -- were killed in a traffic accident Sunday while on a tour bus in Aswan, Egypt, the country's interior ministry said.

Cairo, Egypt --

Egypt's top reform leader has criticized the ruling military council as having too much power but no experience governing.

Mohamed ElBaradei spoke to reporters on Sunday, a week after
more than 20 members of Egypt's Christian minority were killed when
the military broke up their protest in Cairo with force. It was the worst bloodshed since Hosni Mubarak's ouster in February.

"We have a (military) council with powers but no experience, and we have a government with no powers but with experience," ElBaradei told a news conference. He urged the military rulers to form an alternative government with much more authority.

ElBaradei also criticizes Egyptian state TV for "lies" and "instigation" in the violence.
