PARIS (Reuters) – The death toll from Thursday’s collision between a train and a school bus has risen to six, a source familiar with the investigation said on Friday, as investigators combed the mangled wreckage.

The train ploughed into the bus, which was carrying children aged between 11 and 17, on a road crossing near the town of Perpignan in southern France.
