Egypt court to rule on rail workers

Workers face accusations of negligence following deadly train crash last October.

    An Egyptian court is expected to announce a verdict shortly in a case where train operators face accusations of negligence.

    A train crash last October killed 18 people - the latest in a string of disasters that have plagued the Middle East’s largest railway network for the past two decades.

    But that crash has sparked a backlash in Egypt's parliament over who should take the blame for transport disasters, as Rawya Rageh reports.
