More than 280 dead after three-train crash in India


Rescuers have found no more survivors in the wreckage of three trains that crashed in eastern India.

It’s the country’s deadliest rail disaster in twenty years, killing more than 280 people and injuring many hundreds more.

There’s anger that the crash, which involved modern bullet trains, happened on a stretch of rail with no anti collision system and ageing tracks.
