Egypt passenger train hits truck, 22 hurt

Written by: Staff

Cairo, Nov 22: At least 22 people were injured today when an Egyptian passenger train collided with a truck in the town of Zagazig, north of the Egyptian capital, security sources said.

Further details were not immediately available.

The crash was the latest in a series of Egyptian transport accidents that have sparked public anger at what critics call the government's failure to enforce safety standards. In August, a train crash in the Nile Delta town of Qalyoub killed 58 people in Egypt's worst rail disaster in four years.
