On March 26, a train crash in Egypt killed 32 persons and injured 165. Carriages derailed and overturned when two passenger trains collided near the city of Tahta, Sohag province.
Emergency brakes were activated on the train in front by “unknown individuals”, causing the train behind to crash into it, the country’s railway authority said.
President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi said that tough punishment would be given to those responsible.
“Anyone who caused this painful accident through negligence or corruption, or anything similar, must receive a deterrent punishment without exception or delay,” he tweeted.
