Two passenger trains collided in northern Egypt Monday, killing at 26 and injuring 131, railway officials told Egyptian state television. The early morning incident occurred in the town of Qalyoub, 20 kilometers (12 miles) north of the capital Cairo. Adly Hussein, governor of Qalyoubia province where the town is located, told Egyptian state television that two southbound trains headed for Cairo carrying commuters collided at about 7:45 a.m. (0445 GMT). Four cars derailed and overturned which required closing the lines from the Nile Delta cities of Benha and Mansoura, where the trains originated.
