Egypt Train Collision Kills 15

At least 15 people were killed in train collision in northern Egypt, the health ministry said.  Another 40 people were hurt in the collision between a freight train and a passenger train in Beheira province, it said in a statement, Al Jazeera reported. Egyptians have long complained that successive governments have failed to enforce basic safety measures for the railways. A string of crashes have further inflamed public anger over the antiquated transport network. Footage aired by state television showed at least two carriages had derailed in a rural stretch of land. Civilians and medics were seen removing injured passengers and carrying them to ambulances. Health ministry official Alaa Othman told state television “all the wounded and dead have been removed from the scene of the accident”. The cause of Wednesday’s crash was not immediately clear. Prime Minister Sherif Ismail ordered Transport Minister Hesham Arafat to visit the scene and take action as details of the causes of the accident emerge, a cabinet statement said.
