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

Transport ministry officials, quoted on state television, said the crash was probably caused by a malfunction in one train that brought it to a halt on the rails. The collision happened in Alexandria, where ambulances and local officials have been deployed.

Ministry spokesman Khaled Megahed told state television that more than a 100 people were also injured in the collision.

Public prosecutor Nabil Sadek ordered an urgent investigation, it said.

Train accidents are common in Egypt. In 2012, a school bus collided with a train at a rail crossing.

In 2013, dozens of people were killed and when a train crashed into a minibus and other vehicles south of Cairo.

The deadliest accident on Egypt's railways dates back to 2002 when 373 people died as a fire ripped through a crowded train south of the capital.
