Tunisia-Series of rail accidents in Tunisia: SNCFT launches investigations

The Société Nationale des Chemins de Fer Tunisiens (SNCFT) revealed in a press release on Monday that it had initiated an inquiry following the derailment of a locomotive from a phosphate transport train, which happened on Sunday between Gafsa and Ghannouche stations.

This incident is in addition to two other tragic accidents that took place the same weekend. The first accident, which ensued on Sunday evening February 25, 2024 in Sakiet Ezzit, saw a person lose their life after being hit by a train connecting Tunis to Metallaoui.

The second accident, which occurred on Saturday February 24, 2024, implicated the death of a sub-Saharan national hit by a train between Le Kef and Tunis, before the Mallaha station.

The SNCFT voiced its regrets regarding these unfortunate events and confirmed the opening of two additional investigations to shed light on the circumstances of these incidents.
