Two passenger trains collided head-on in Alexandria, Egypt, on Friday -- killing dozens of people and injuring scores more, government officials said.
Authorities said one of the trains had departed from Cairo and the other was from Port Said.
The head of the Alexandria ambulance service said the death toll could rise, as many of the injuries were serious.
Train accidents in Egypt are rare but not unheard of. In 2012, a school bus collided with a train at a rail crossing. Fifty-one people were killed, many of them children. A train derailment in 2013 also killed 13 people.
