Train runs into crowd
A SPEEDING train has crashed into a crowd watching fireworks during a religious festival in northern India, killing at least 60 people and injuring dozens more, police said.
The train failed to stop after the accident on the outskirts of Amritsar, a city in Punjab state, said local politician Pratap Singh Bajwa.
The Press Trust of India news agency said two trains arrived from opposite directions on separate tracks, giving little opportunity for people to escape.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi said he was “extremely saddened” by the accident.
