The second rail accident in the same number of days leads the talk shows on 23 June 2021
Most of the talking heads were focused yesterday on the nation’s second rail accident in 24 hours after two trains collided in Alexandria, leaving at least 40 people injured. The conductor and other staff members now face investigation. The accident came just hours after a train ploughed into two microbuses in Helwan overnight, killing at least two people and injuring six others. Ala Mas’ouleety (watch, runtime: 19:40) also had coverage. Masaa DMC’s Ramy Radwan took note of a third accident that could have taken place in Suez last night as a vehicle was parked on the railroad before the train conductor stopped the train at the last minute and prevented the crash (watch, runtime: 6:58).
Elsewhere: The Supply Ministry is looking to ramp up its local production of wheat to reach 3.6 mn tonnes by the end of this year, Minister Aly El Moselhy said in a phone-in to Yahduth fi Misr (watch, runtime: 4:39) last night. Current reserves should last six-and-a-half months until the start of the next local wheat season in January 2022, El Moselhy said (watch, runtime: 4:23).
