Over 100 people were wounded when a train crashed into concrete south of Cairo in the early hours of Thursday morning, according to Al-Ahram state media.

Tens of ambulances were rushed to the scene to treat the wounded, however local news reports said that the injuries were minimal. The train was headed from Aswan to the capital Cairo.

The train collided with a concrete block which led it to derail, lifting the front of one of the carriages several meters into the air.

Egypt's roads and railways have a poor safety record and Egyptians have long complained that governments have failed to enforce basic safeguards.
