Fatal train crash in Turkey
Text size Aa Aa

As many as five people have been killed after a Turkish express train crashed into a construction vehicle en route from Ankara to Istanbul.

Several carriages were derailed on impact and a number of people suffered injuries close to the nortwestern town of Bilecik. Ambulances and rescue teams are hard at work trying to release those trapped in the twisted metal.
