Egyptian train crash

Reported to have killed 'dozens' when one train went into the back of another. Human error is being cited as the cause, suggesting a driver passed a signal. Interesting to note that the head of the state railway authority was fired and his deputy suspended before the inquiry had reached any conclusions. It seems that the rail authority has been seen as being generally lenient regarding safety for some time, and there is motivation to maintain standard.
