The tourist who was killed is a U.S. national, though the nationalities of the other tourists injured are still unknown, Al-Ahram reported.

The balloon was carrying tourists from different nationalities and Egyptians. An official from Luxor's governor's office said the person killed was a 36-year-old woman from South Africa.

The unstable weather and strong winds were behind the disturbance of the hot air balloon that led to the accident, several media reported.

The 22-year-old model seemed to be posing in a dimly lit bathroom with the caption: "Loner life" followed by an alien emoji. The Kardashians have gathered for another festive photo, but yet again Kylie Jenner is missing from the line-up.

Egypt's civil aviation ministry said 21 hot air balloons had taken off and landed with no incident on Friday but the one that crashed had landed too forcefully.

In 2013, 19 foreign tourists were killed when their balloon caught fire. The tragedy came four years after a hot air balloon crash injured 13 tourists seeking an aerial view of the city.

"About 20 people were on board when the accident occurred on Friday". Such flights usually start before sunrise and pass over green fields leading to the Valley of the Kings - the burial site of famous boy king Tutankhamun and other pharaohs.
