    Background: Thirteen people, including two children, were killed and 53 others injured on Saturday (August 22) when a carriage of the Aswan-Cairo Express train overturned. The derailment of the nine-coach express happened at Tamouh village, in Giza province just south of Cairo.

    The train was only 15 minutes away from its arrival in Cairo when the derailment occurred. The injured passengers were taken to Um E1 Masryin hospital and 17 of them were allowed to leave after receiving treatment for slight injuries.

    The UAR Minister of Social Affairs, Hafez Badawy, visited the hospital and gave instructions that immediate financial aid be given to the families of the casualties.

    An official investigating the accident said the derailment occurred when the wheels broke away from the coach. This prevented the whole train from being derailed, it was said.

    The Giza province Governor, Mohamed E1 Bultagi, rushed to the scene of the accident with rescue teams.
