CAIRO, Nov. 10 (Xinhua) -- At least four people were killed and another 30 injured when two trains collided with each other on Saturday in Egypt's Faiyum governorate, some 85 km south of Cairo, official MENA news agency reported.

The wounded have been taken to different hospitals for treatment, MENA quoted an official from Egyptian Ambulance Organization as saying, adding that the injuries are among fracture, cut, bruise and brain concussion.

The accident took place in the evening between the villages of Seilla and Nasseriya in central Faiyum, when the train No. 3265 coming from Alexandria to Faiyum collided with the train No. 3607 heading to Cairo.

In February 2002, a train disaster caused by a fire left more than 300 people killed, which was the worst train accident in Egypt in 150 years.
