An Egyptian looks through books and school bags that were strewn along the tracks at the scene where a speeding train crashed into a bus carrying children to their kindergarten, killing at least 47, officials said, near Assiut in southern Egypt, Saturday, Nov. 17, 2012. The bus was carrying more than 50 children between 4 and 6 years old when it was hit by a train near al-Mandara village in Manfaloot district in the province of Assiut, a security official said, adding that it appears that the railroad crossing was not closed as the train sped toward it.
