Earlier this morning Egypt has witnessed an unfortunate tragedy, when a fire broke out at Cairo’s main railway station in Ramsis causing the deaths and injuries of many citizens.

Around 20 people were announced dead and 40 others suffer from injuries, as the train locomotive derailed and crashed into a buffer stop at platform no. 6 at the station. Railway authorities explained that the hit into the buffer stop caused the explosion of the fuel tank, which then triggered a huge blaze.

Security forces then rushed into halting all movements surrounding the area, and closed off the site. Ambulances and firefighters stepped in to control the situation, and the injured were admitted into the nearest hospitals.

Security forces also arrested the driver of the train no. 2302.

Furthermore, shortly after the events of the unfortunate incident, Egypt’s Transport Minister Hisham Arafat has sent in his resignation to Prime Minister Moustafa Madbouli.

Spokesman for the Health Ministry just announced that 14 out of the injured, had been released from hospitals after receiving the proper and needed treatments.

We wish for them a quick recovery, and our thoughts and prayers go to all those who have lost loved ones today. May god help soothe their souls and minds.
