Train collision in Pakistan kills at least 30

A Pakistani train smashed into derailed carriages from another train on Monday, killing at least 33 people, government officials said, in the latest accident to highlight the perilous state of a more-than-150 year old railway system.

The death toll was likely to rise as rescuers struggled to reach people trapped in several mangled compartments strewn across the tracks in the southern province of Sindh.

A Pakistan Railways spokesman said at least 33 bodies had been taken to hospitals, among them two railway officials. More than 100 people were injured, he told Reuters.
