Egyptian Cabinet Spokesman Nader Saad announced the latest decisions in a train collision in Sohag Governorate in Upper Egypt.
Saad said in a television interview that “there are ongoing procedures with the inspection of everyone who works in the railway system.”
He added, “Random blood samples will be taken on a continuous basis for employees of the authority.”
On the causes of the Sohag train accident, he said, “It is difficult to guess the causes of the accident, and the prime minister left the technical causes of the Sohag train accident to the Public Prosecution, which determines who is responsible and the cause of the accident. What matters to the government is to mitigate the effects of the accident on the injured and the families of the victims.”
“The railway facility is being modernized by importing modern trains and changing the signaling system,” he added.
And the Egyptian Ministry of Health and Population announced that 32 people were killed and 108 others were injured in the collision of two trains at the Tahta center in Sohag Governorate.
