Train collision in Egypt kills 36, injures dozens

Footage broadcast on state television showed one train had partly keeled over in Alexandria Egypt

Two trains collided in Khorshid area west Alexandria leaving scores of people dead or injured amid tangled metal, Middle East News Agency (MENA) announced.

At least 36 people were killed and another 123 injured on Friday when two trains collided in Egypt's coastal city of Alexandria, according to the Egyptian Health Ministry.

Television reports, citing ministry of transport officials, said the accident happened when one of the trains broke down.

Nearly a year later, a collision between a train and a bus killed 27 people south of Cairo.

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. The statement did not say what caused the accident, saying only that the authority's experts would investigate.

Egypt's railway system has a poor safety record, mostly blamed on decades of badly maintained equipment and poor management.

'The Dark Tower' wins the weekend box office despite disgusting reviews
The movie despite topping the charts last week managed to secure a modest $19.5 million out of 3451 locations. The less than $20 million opening is quite disappointing for a film that has spent years in production.

In July 2008, at least 44 people died near Marsa Matruh in northwest Egypt when a runaway truck hurtled into bus, truck and several cars waiting at a level crossing, shunting the vehicles into the path of a train.

Egypt's deadliest rail accident occurred near the capital in 2002, when a fire ripped through a crowded train killing more than 370 people.

Train accidents are common in Egypt.
