20 killed in head-on train col­li­sion

Daily Trust - - AROUND THE WORLD -

Twenty peo­ple have been killed and dozens more hurt in a head-on col­li­sion in­volv­ing two pas­sen­ger trains in south­ern Italy, of­fi­cials say.

The two trains were on a sin­gle-track line at the time of the crash, be­tween the coastal towns of Bari and Bar­letta.

The emer­gency ser­vices have been try­ing to free pas­sen­gers from the shat­tered car­riages, near the town of An­dria.

One of those pulled from the wreck­age was a small child, who was air­lifted to hospital.

The lo­cal au­thor­i­ties have ap­pealed for blood donors to come for­ward.
