Indian actress and film producer, Sridevi Kapoor, was found dead Feb. 24 after an accidental drowning in a hotel bathtub in Dubai. The actress, who was known publicly as Sridevi, had appeared in over 300 films and is commonly referred to as the “First female superstar” of Bollywood. On Feb. 28, over 7,000 mourners paid their respects along Sridevi’s funeral procession in Mumbai, India.

Fifteen people were killed and forty were injured on Feb. 28 when a passenger and a cargo train collided in the Nile Delta north of Cairo, Egypt. Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi said last year that an update of the historically under-funded rail system would cost 180 billion Egyptian points (about $10 billion). This follows an accident in August outside Alexandria, where 43 people were killed when two passenger trains collided.
