ABC News: Death toll in Egypt train collision rises to 4011 August 2017 | 22:51 | FOCUS News Agency
The ministry also says more than 100 people were injured in the collision on Friday. It was the country's deadliest rail accident in more than a decade.
The Egyptian Railways Authority earlier said one of the trains, traveling from the capital of Cairo, crashed into the back of another train, which was waiting at a small station in the district of Khorshid, just east of Alexandria.
The stationary train had just arrived from Port Said, a Mediterranean city on the northern tip of the Suez Canal, when it was hit. The statement did not say what caused the accident, saying only that the authority's experts would investigate.
