Egypt train crash killed 19

Egypt News

World News – Egypt’s state news agency says 19 people have been killed and more than 100 injured when two railroad passenger cars derailed just south of Cairo.

The official MENA news agency quoted Health Ministry officials as saying that the 107 wounded were being treated in hospitals near the site of the accident in Giza’s Badrasheen neighborhood.

The train was carrying army recruits when it jumped the track Monday evening.

The accident comes the same month that President Mohammed Morsi named a new transportation minister who is a member of his Muslim Brotherhood group. The post had been left vacant in the aftermath of a train accident that killed 49 kindergartners on their way to school in November. Agencies
