Death Toll in Egypt Rail Disaster Climbs to 40

CAIRO – The number of confirmed fatalities from Friday’s train collision in northern Egypt has reached 40, state news agency Mena said, citing figures from the Health Ministry.

Another 133 other people were hurt.

The 13 Express train traveling the Cairo-Alexandria route rammed into the back of a train covering the Port Said-Alexandria route near the Khorshid station, 11 kilometers (7 miles) to the east of Alexandria, according to Mena.

The 13 Express train’s engine and two cars at the end of the other train were overturned, Mena reported, citing Egypt’s railway authority.

Health Ministry spokesman Khaled Mujahid said that 75 ambulances transported the injured to hospitals in Alexandria.

Egypt’s attorney general, Nabil Sadek, ordered an investigation into the country’s worst railway accident since 2012, when 51 people – most of them children – died in a collision between a train and a school bus in the southern province of Asiut.
