At least 49 people have been killed and dozens more injured in a train collision in Egypt's coastal city of Alexandria, the country's health ministry said.

State news agency MENA reported that two trains were involved in Friday's accident.

Footage broadcast on state television showed one train had partly keeled over in the crash, and medics were seen moving the dead and injured to ambulances.
