Egyptian passengers fed up with waiting for their train to move put logs and rocks on the rails of a nearby track, causing two other trains to collide, according to officials.

At least four people were injured in the crash in Giza. Since last year's uprising, there have been numerous protests staged by train passengers demanding better services as well as strikes by railway employees demanding higher wages, often delaying trains for hours and sometimes days.
