A passenger train has collided with a cargo train in Egypt, killing at least 12 people, including a child.
Another 39 people were injured in the crash, which took place in the Nile Delta north of Cairo, according to the state-run MENA news agency.
The Health Ministry said the trains were both bound for the country’s capital.
Egypt’s railway system has a poor safety record, mostly blamed on decades of poor management and maintenance.
Deadly accidents have claimed hundreds of lives over the years.
In August, two passenger trains collided just outside Egypt’s Mediterranean port city of Alexandria, killing 43 people, the country’s deadliest rail accident in more than a decade. In 2016, at least 51 people were killed when two commuter trains collided near Cairo.
In November 2012, a speeding train crashed into a bus carrying children to their nursery school in the country’s south, killing more than 50, mostly children between the ages of four and six. Two months later, at least 19 people died in a train derailment south of Cairo.
