An Egyptian train carrying laborers plowed into an express coach that had been slowed by heavy fog, killing at least 75 people. The collision in Badrshein, 15 miles south of Cairo, sent cars hurtling into dozens of track-side shops. "There was screaming, people jumping from the train's windows . . . and lots of blood," said Samia Mohammed, 13, who witnessed the wreck. Hours after the crash, dead bodies remained stuck in the tangled wreckage. At least 76 people were injured.
