2 are killed in collapse of 8-story apartment tower in Egypt's port city of Alexandria

Egypt's official news agency says an eight-story apartment building collapsed in the Mediterranean port city of Alexandria, killing two people.

MENA said the collapse on Wednesday morning injured another seven people.

It was not immediately known what caused the building to collapse, but violations of building specifications have been blamed in the past for similar accidents.

The building collapse came one day after another deadly accident blamed on negligence took place. Early on Tuesday just south of Cairo, 19 police conscripts were killed and more than a 100 injured when a train's last car jumped the track, slammed into a parked train and then was dragged for several kilometers (miles).
