The governor of Egypt's southern province of Luxor on Tuesday ordered a ban of all hot air balloons flights in the ancient temple city following a deadly crash that killed 19 tourists.

"Governor Ezzat Saad ordered that all balloon companies stop working, and that no hot hair balloon flights take off from Luxor," the official MENA news agency reported, without specifying how long the ban would remain in place.
