#India train rams school bus killing 20, mostly children

HYDERABAD, India (AFP) - A passenger train rammed into a school bus in southern India on Thursday killing 20 people, mostly young children, officials said in the latest fatal accident on the country's rail network. The train collided with the bus carrying about 30 children as it drove across an unmanned level crossing in the state of Telangana, dragging the mangled vehicle down the tracks, officials said. "There are 20 confirmed dead based on railway inputs. A lot of people who are critically injured were shifted to different hospitals," K. Samba Siva Rao, a spokesman for South Central Railway, told AFP. The bus had been travelling to school when the accident occurred in the village of Masaipet about 62 kilometres from state capital Hyderabad.
