Two trains collided in Egypt: 32 dead, 66 injured


The moments of the accident, in which 32 people died and 165 were injured as a result of the collision of two trains yesterday in the city of Sohag, which is 460 km from the capital Cairo in the south of Egypt, were reflected on the security camera. The images reflected on the security camera of the train station showed the moments when two trains collided head-on. The Ministry of Health stated that 36 ambulances were sent to the accident area and that the injured were taken to the hospital.

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi said that ‘whoever has caused the Sohag train accident, will receive the deterrent penalty.’

Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly added that any ‘error or negligence will not be tolerated, and the perpetrator will be held accountable for the accident.’

Egyptian Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly said that the country’s railway facilities have ‘witnessed decades of neglect, lack of development and maintenance, which is leaving it in a state that led to danger.’

‘Control systems operate manually, train cars have run out of date,’ he told Egyptian TV, while inspecting the site.

Egypt’s aging railway system has witnessed a deadly accident almost every year for the past 20 years. In 2018, Egypt recorded 2,044 train accidents and in 2017, 1,793 accidents were recorded according to data published by the official statistics agency Central Agency for Public Mobilization and Statistics (CAPMAS).
