Most likely, the balloon was shot down by local muslims.

Since Barrack Hussein Obama helped overthrow the Egyptian government, the country is unsafe for any tourist.
Hussein Obama's homeboy muslim terrorists now control the country.

The pilot line was wrapped around a helium tank.

Making light of the deaths of 19 tourists is a sad way to go about things.

RIP to all of them.

Geez, it was an accident. How could you be so brash about it? People died!

LOL! A few.....because we try more often than everyone else combined. How many dirty Egyptians have walked on the Moon? Any Egyptian "rovers" driving around on Mars? What has an Egyptian invented in the past 5000 years? Oh! That's right....
