95 injured in train crash in Tunisia
No life-threatening injuries have been sustained in the accident.
Two passenger trains have collided in Tunisia, injuring 95 people on Monday in the south of the capital, Tunis, according to emergency services.
"The injured were taken to hospitals and there were no deaths," civil defense spokesman Moez Triaa told AFP.
One of the trains was carrying passengers, who mostly sustained fractures and bruises, none life-threatening, according to Triaa. Many of the injured were in shock, disclosing that around 15 ambulances were dispatched to treat the wounded and rush them to the hospital.
The accident took place at 9:30 am in the Jbel Jelloud, south Tunis.
One of the train's front was concaved inwards, as described by an AFP reporter.
Tunisia's aging railway system has seen several deadly accidents over the years, reporting around 100 crashes a year. In 2016, a train rammed into a bus and caused 5 deaths and over 50 injuries just near the accident site on Monday. Last year, due to signal failures, 18 people were killed in another train accident which hit a lorry and derailed.
