'Several injured' in Egypt train crash


A train crash near the Egyptian capital Cairo has slightly injured several people. 
Security and medical officials have denied earlier reports that passengers had been killed.
It is thought the train was heading for Cairo from a southern province. It came off the rails and caught fire at Badrashin about 30 kilometres south of the capital.
Police say the injured were taken to hospital but were not detained.
The cause of the crash is not known. There have been complaints in Egypt that successive governments have neglected safety on the country’s railways, leading to fatal accidents.
