Egypt: Train crash kills 18

The health Ministry of Egypt announced in a statement carried by the official Middle East News Agency (MENA) that a train crash in south of Cairo left over 18 people dead. Reuters states that over 39 people were injured during the accident on Saturday evening but 19 of them had already been discharged from hospital. Security sources said the first class train, filled with passengers, rammed into a nearly empty stationary train on the same track. In 2008, a train crash in northern Egypt killed 44 people, two years after another crash that killed 58 people.
