>> Two trains have collided in Egypt's port city of Alexandria, killing at least 36 people. More than 100 others were injured in the crash near the Hosheed station on the Cairo Alexandria line. The engine of one train and two cars of the other derailed. Sources saying the cause was likely a track switching error.
Passersby crowded onto the trains to try to help. The public prosecutor ordering an urgent investigation. Egypt's roads and railways are badly maintained and have a poor safety record. In 2012, 50 people, mostly children, were killed when a train crashed into a school bus. Inflaming public anger over the country's antiquated transport network.
