The initial reports said the human causalities reached 25 personŲŒ and dozens others injured.

"The train I was riding was going very quickly", said passenger Moumen Youssef, as quoted by Reuters.

In a previous statement the ministry said that 20 people were killed and another 88 injured in the incident.

Two trains collided in Alexandria, Egypt, leaving at least 20 dead and 74 wounded, according to Egypt's Health Ministry, via state-run Al-Ahram news.

Train accidents are common in Egypt.

"The rescue team is now searching for survivals while ambulances are transferring the injured to nearby hospitals", said Magdy Hegazi, undersecretary at the Health ministry.

State television, citing transport ministry officials, reported that the crash was probably caused by a malfunction in one of the trains that brought it to a halt on the rails.

The stationary train had just arrived from Port Said, a Mediterranean city on the northern tip of the Suez Canal, when it was hit.

Hospitals in Alexandria announced state of emergency to receive more injured.

In November 2012, a speeding train crashed into a bus carrying Egyptian children to their kindergarten in the country's south, killing more than 50 - mostly children between the ages of four and six.

Efforts were still exerted to extradite more bodies and injured from wreckage of the two trains.
