The Scirè was a submarine of the Adua class launched in 1938. The vessel was designed for operations in the Mediterranean and thus displaced 700 tons and was 60m long. However it would have been employed not as standard submarine...

In summer 1940 the Scirè was assigned to the X° M.A.S. flotilla and modified to act as S.L.C. carrier, tasked with launching the human torpedo close to their targets. For this purpose, three metallic cylinders were installed on the submarine deck to contain the S.L.C.s
Under the command of Junio Valerio Borghese, the Scirè participated to the various attacks of the X M.A.S. against allied ships in Gibraltar in 1940 and 1941. However its most famous achievement was the attack against Alexandria in December 1941.

There is horrific footage of the Ramses Train Station explosion showing people literally on fire after the explosion set them ablaze. It is a gut wrenching embodiment of the toll on #Egyptians of state neglect.
Every week terrible news comes from #Egypt. Today’s train disaster, last week’s execution of 9 men, news of forced disappearances,the proposed amendments to the constitution that could give Sisi more terms in office. Daily people struggle to get by & survive state neglect & abuse
Ramses Station is used by millions every year. In Arabic it’s known as Mahatet Masr which means Egypt Station. A disaster like that at this Station symbolizes so much. I’ve taken the train from there to Alexandria many times; I took the train from Aswan to that station in 2017.
