25 killed, many injured in Egypt train crash

At least 25 people were killed and 50 injured when a locomotive smashed through the buffer stop at Cairo’s main train station on Wednesday, causing an explosion and fire, state television and witnesses said.

Footage circulating on social media from a security camera inside Ramses station showed the train failing to stop as it arrived at platform six, smashing through the buffers and a metal end railing as passengers carrying luggage walked by.
