At least one person has reportedly been killed and up to 60 have been injured after two trains collided in Boudouaou, Algeria, according to local media.
 
According to reports, the trains were travelling in the same direction when they collided.
 
“It’s not a crash but a clash,” Yacine Bendjaballah, director of the National Society Algerian railway (SNTF) said. ”The two passenger trains were rolling in the same direction.”
 
Local TV channel Ennahar said one of the two conductors is dead, quoting the Civil Defense, and reported the trains were running between Algiers and Thenia.
 
Injured passengers are being transported to hospital in Boumerdes.
 
Algeria’s transport minister Boujema Talai said the crash occurred when an express train and a normal speed train collided on the same track, Elbilad reports.
 
Boudouaou is located on the Mediterranean coast in the province of Boumedes.
