More than 50 ambulances were dispatched by the Ministry of Health to rescue the injured from the crash. The Egyptian Railways Authority said it was still investigating why the train, which was heading from Cairo to Mansoura, derailed.
Most of the injuries were minor or moderate, with only a few critical cases, Khaled Megahed, a health ministry spokesman, told a local TV station. Video posted on social media showed the victims and the injured passengers scattered along the railway line, next to the overturned train cars. Sounds of distress could also be heard.
Train movement has stopped in the East Delta.

“...it was still investigating why the train, which was heading from Cairo to Mansoura, derailed.”
Technology from the 1800s ?
Sabotage? Lack of proper maintenance? Worn-out parts?
I’ve been on Egyptian trains.
Usually, an interesting ride, especially at 3:00 a.m. and downing a bottle or two of Egyptian wine.
When the train stops on a village, the locals start banging on the side of the train.
There comes a moment when you hope the train tumbles down a ravine.
Systemic train violence?
Thanks Captain Obvious. 😂😂😂😂😂👍
Better outlaw trains.
May we safely assume that all the dead were mooselimbs?
If so, where’s the down side?
The gov’t should blame it on the jihadists, do a roundup, and shoot them all.
