Trains Kill Over 20 in Madhya Pradesh, India

At least 27 people have been killed after two passenger trains travelling in opposite directions derailed within minutes of each other, sending carriages tumbling into a river in the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh.

The Kamayani Express derailed last night near the Kudawa railway station, about 20km from the town of Harda.

A second train, the Janata Express, travelling in the opposite direction from Patna to Mumbai, also derailed on the same bridge minutes later.

Meanwhile, Police have recovered 27 bodies so far, but many more are feared dead.
