Cairo Court re-detains 6 officials for 45 days for Ramses train accident
By: Egypt Today staff

CAIRO – 18 April 2019: A Cairo criminal court renewed the detention of six railway officials for 45 days pending investigations into the Ramses train accident, where a deadly locomotive crashed, killing 22 people and injuring 41 others on February 27.

On March 1, Prosecutor-General Nabil Sadeq ordered the arrest of the driver of the deadly locomotive immediately following the accident. Initial investigations revealed that the driver left the locomotive with its engine on to check another locomotive that rammed into it from the opposite direction.

The arrest warrant included six individuals,the drivers of both trains, their assistants and the rail workers over the accusation of manslaughter and vandalism. They were detained for 15 days pending investigations, and their detention was renewed for 15 additional days.

Twenty-two people were announced killed and at least 40 others were injured when a train locomotive collided into the buffer stop at platform number six, causing a huge explosion.
