The collision of pure electromagnetic plane waves with collinear polarization in N-dimensional (N = 2 + n) Einstein-Maxwell theory is considered. A class of exact solutions for the higher dimensional Bell-Szekeres metric is obtained and its singularity structure is examined. © 2003 The American Physical Society.
