A passenger train traveling in southern Egypt collided with the back end of another passenger train on March 26, killing at least 32 people and injuring more than 100. Authorities said that someone on the forward train had initiated the emergency brake without cause, but, at press time, it was not known who had done it. Investigators were trying to determine whether the act was a deliberate attempt to cause an accident.
