Two Trains Collide in Egypt, at Least  50 Injured – Ministry

CAIRO- At least 50 people were injured when two trains collided north of the Egyptian city of Sohag on Friday, the health ministry said.
Health authorities had dispatched 36 ambulances to the scene and casualties were being taken to local hospitals, the ministry said in a statement.
Pictures on local media showed train carriages derailed above a channel of water.
“The trains collided while going at not very high speeds, which led to the destruction of two carriages and a third to overturn,” a security source told Reuters.
Egypt has one of the oldest and largest rail networks in the region and accidents causing casualties are common. (Reuters)
