Fourteen killed as trains collide south of Cairo

Oct. 24, 2009 9:06 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 25, 2009 10:12 P.M.)
Bethlehem – Ma'an/Agencies – At least 14 people were killed as two trains collided south of Cairo, the Qatari broadcaster Al-Jazeera was reporting late Saturday night.

The Dubai-based satellite channel Al-Arabiya said some 25 more were injured.

The collision occurred between Al-Jeeza and Bani Swef, according to Al-Jazeera.

One of the two trains was reportedly traveling from Cairo to Asiot, while the other was said to have been en route to Fayoum from Al-Jeeza, all south of the Egyptian capital.

None of the victims were immediately identified.

Several train accidents in Egypt have left hundreds dead and injured over the past few years. Cairo's apparent lack of rail regulations has also led to rare but vocal public outcries against Hosni Mubarak's government.
