At least 20 people have been killed and a dozen others injured in a collision involving two passenger trains in Alexandria, Egypt.
One of the trains was travelling from Cairo, and the other from Port Said when they hit head-on in the Northern coastal city of Alexandria.
Ambulances and local officials were reportedly deployed to the incident. The exact number of injured is still unknown.
Mass-casualty train accidents in Egypt have included a train derailment in Badr Rashin in Giza that killed at least 19 people in 2013.
Also, in 2012, a collision between a train and school bus on a rail crossing in the town of Manaflut in Upper Egypt killed 51 people, mostly children.
