Arrests made as Sohag train crash death toll revised downwards: Eight people have been arrested over the collision of two trains in Sohag on Friday that claimed the lives of 18 people and injured hundreds, the Prosecutor General’s office said in a video statement (watch, runtime: 5:45). These include the drivers of the two trains and their two assistants, the head of traffic control in Assiut, and three other guards. The prosecutor also revised the death toll down to 18 from 19, and raised the number of people found injured to 200. Initial reports suggested that 32 people had lost their lives in the collision, but the Health Ministry revised the figure to 19.
