More than two dozen people have been killed after two trains collided in the Egyptian city of Alexandria.
Some 36 people are dead and more than 100 injured.
One of the trains was travelling from Port Said and the other from Cairo, Ahram Online said, before they crashed.
Egypt's railway authority said an express train had crashed into the rear of the second train near the Khurshid station on the Cairo-to-Alexandria line.
There was no immediate information on what had caused the collision.
The head of the ambulance services in Alexandria's western sector, Dr Mohamed Abu Homs, said he feared the death toll and the number of injured could rise further.
Egypt's railway system has a poor safety record, mostly blamed on decades of badly maintained equipment and poor management.
State TV broadcast images of mangled train coaches on the tracks as crowds gathered around trying to help the victims.
