Cairo train derailment leaves 19 dead

A military train carrying army recruits has derailed south of Egypt's capital, Cairo, killing 19 people and injuring more than 100, officials say.

The train was heading to an army camp in Cairo when a carriage became detached and crashed into a goods train in the Badrashin area of Giza.

Egypt's prime minister visited the scene, but was led to safety after being abused by angry bystanders.

Aleem Maqbool reports from the crash site in Giza, to the southwest of Cairo.
