Egypt raps selfie medics in train crash

New Straits Times - - World -

Egypt’s Health Min­istry has pun­ished six medics who took self­ies in front of a deadly train wreck by trans­fer­ring them to a re­mote part of the coun­try, it said on Satur­day. Two trains col­lided on Fri­day near the Mediter­ranean city of Alexan­dria, killing 41. Pic­tures of an am­bu­lance crew tak­ing selfie pic­tures in front of the wreck­age sparked anger on so­cial me­dia. Dubbed the “Selfie Medics”, the min­istry said six mem­bers of the am­bu­lance crew had been trans­ferred to the west­ern Siwa oa­sis as pun­ish­ment.
