13 Children Dead After Train Hits School Bus In India


At least 13 children were killed and five critically injured Thursday after a train smashed into a small school bus in northern India, an official said.

The students, all aged below 10, were being driven to class in Uttar Pradesh state when a passenger train collided with their vehicle at an unmanned railway crossing.

The impact of the crash lifted the bus several metres into the air, killing 10 children instantly, district chief medical officer Akhilesh Kumar Singh told AFP.

"Three succumbed to the injuries at the hospital and five remain critical," he added.
