Railway disaster in Egypt. At least 32 people were killed and 66 others injured on Friday March 26 in the collision of two passenger trains at midday in Sohag, southern Egypt, the health ministry said. According to a video filmed near the scene of the accident and widely disseminated by local media, several cars overturned on their side.

Health Minister Hala Zayed is on her way to the crash site “to monitor the state of health of the injured”, according to an official statement. The prosecution announced that it had opened an investigation to clarify the circumstances of the accident.

Egypt is regularly the scene of serious road or rail accidents, due to anarchic traffic, dilapidated vehicles or poorly maintained and poorly supervised roads and railways. The deadliest railway tragedy in Egyptian history occurred in 2002, when a train burned down that killed some 370 people some 40 kilometers south of Cairo.
