Cairo, Oct 25 (PTI)
More than 50 people have been killed and 30 others injured when a passenger train at full speed rammed into a stationary train on the outskirts of Cairo, officials said today.

The trains were travelling on the same track and were headed toward Assiut and Aswan, a major tourist attraction in South. Suddenly, the first train stopped and the second, full of passengers, rammed into it from behind in Jirza village, 70 kms southwest of Cairo last evening.

The first train had stopped to avoid running over a cow which was on the track and no warning signal was given to the second train travelling on the same line. Ten minutes later the second train arrived at full speed and crashed into the first train, an eyewitness said.
