A train has derailed and crashed south of Cairo, leaving an unknown number of people dead and injured, reports says.
The train, coming from the town of Sohag 500km south of the capital, crashed on Tuesday into a stationary train near Badrashin station, 30km from Cairo.
Five of the 15 carriages on the train headed to Cairo overturned.
In Egypt's last train tragedy, 19 people were killed in 2009 when one train hurtled at full-speed into the back of another which had stopped.
The country's deadliest train crash was in February 2002 when the bodies of at least 361 passengers were recovered from a train after a fire.
