Egypt train crash: Investigators say driver to blame

Dozens dead after high-speed train crashes in Cairo, sparking criticism of neglected railway infrastructure.

    The driver of a train that crashed in Cairo's central railway station has been arrested following the accident.

    Egypt's railway system is badly in need of crucial upgrades and a fresh injection of funds, but the economy is doing badly.

    The transport minister has resigned, but that still hasn't satisfied many people who are saying the president should ultimately take the blame.
