28 killed, 80 injured after two trains collide in Egypt

Injured

The Health ministry is yet to announce the final toll.

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.

The stationary train had just arrived from Port Said, a Mediterranean city on the northern tip of the Suez Canal, when it was hit.

In 2012, a train plowed into a school bus south of Cairo and killed 50 people, mostly children, inflaming public anger over Egypt's antiquated transport network.

Associated Press footage from the scene showed mangled train coaches on the tracks and several others derailed as hundreds of onlookers and victims' relatives gathered around on both sides of the tracks.

According to local authorities, a mistake by the operator of a semaphore caused the accident.

"The rescue team is now searching for survivals while ambulances are transferring the injured to nearby hospitals", said Magdy Hegazi, undersecretary at the Health ministry.

Wadi told state television that most of the injured have been taken to hospital.
