11 Killed, 98 Injured In Egypt’s Second Rail Crash In A Month

Eleven people have been killed and 98 have been injured in the second deadly rail accident in Egypt in a month.

Four carriages of a train derailed at a station near Toukh on Sunday afternoon, as it travelled north from the capital, Cairo, to the city of Mansoura.

The cause was not immediately clear, but president Abdul Fattah Al-Sisi ordered an investigation.

The rail authority said the driver and his assistant, as well as eight station officials, had been detained.

Last Thursday, 15 people were injured when a train derailed in Sharqiya province, North-East of Cairo. And on 26 March, at least 19 people died and 185 others were hurt when two trains collided in Sohag province, south of the capital.
