Dozens killed when a train derails in southern Pakistan, in the latest accident on the country's ageing railway system.


At least 30 people have died and 100 others were injured when a train went off the tracks on Sunday in southern Pakistan.

It’s believed that some 10 carriages of Hazara Express overturned trapping many passengers inside.

It is not clear yet what caused the derailment, but railway officials say initial investigations suggest the train was travelling at a normal speed.
