At least 30 killed, dozens injured in Pakistan train crash
At least 34 people had been killed and dozens harmed on Mon (Jun 7) whenever a loaded Pakistani inter-city teach ploughed into carriages from another train that had previously derailed, officials said.

An unknown quantity of people were even now trapped in the tangled wreckage around Daharki in northern Sindh province, a railway spokesman said, adding rescue staff had called urgently for consultant equipment so they may be reached. "The site is far so in retrospect we happen to be facing some difficulties in the rescue function, he explained, adding at least six wagons were destroyed in the incident.

The spokesman said the accident happened when the Millat Exhibit heading from Karachi to Sargodha, derailed before dawn, spilling onto a track carrying the Sir Syed Exhibit from Rawalpindi in the opposite direction. At least 30 dead had been transported to encircling hospitals, and rescuers were still trying to access a coach where about 25 persons were thought to be trapped, senior district law enforcement established Umar Tufail told native tv set channel Geo News. Large crowds of people collected around the carnage of countless overturned Pakistan Railways carriages, some climbing along with the mangled wreckage so that they can reach survivors and bodies, in footage aired by localized media.
