CAIRO (Reuters) - A collision between two trains killed at
least 15 people and injured 70 on Monday in a Nile Delta town
north of Cairo, initial reports from health and security
sources said.

The accident took place about 7 a.m. local time (0400 GMT)
near the town of Qalyoub, about 20 km (12 miles) north of
Cairo, they said.

One train collided into the rear of a stationary train,
causing one of them to derail and overturn. Ambulances and
rescue workers are on the way to the site, the sources added.
