36 Dead and Hundreds Injured After Trains Collide in Egypt
A statement by the Egyptian Railways Authority said a train traveling to Alexandria from Cairo, Egypt's capital, crashed into the back of another train, which was waiting at a small station in the district of Khorshid, just east of Alexandria. The stationary train had just arrived from Port Said, a Mediterranean city on the northern tip of the Suez Canal, when it was hit, according to the statement. Egypt's railway system has a poor safety record, mostly blamed on decades of badly maintained equipment and poor management.
