Two trains have collided near the Egyptian city of Sohag, killing 32 people and injuring at least 66 others. The country’s prime minister is chairing a crisis meeting in response.
Dramatic footage showed people trying to rescue passengers trapped inside the twisted wreckage outside Sohag, some 300 miles south of the capital, Cairo.
Some passengers who had escaped were seen lying on the ground injured.
At least 36 ambulances were sent to the site of the crash and took victims to local hospitals, the health ministry said in a statement. (RT)
