At least 56 killed in India train crash

“At least 56 bodies have been pulled out of the mangled wreckage where two trains crashed in eastern India early Friday in an incident linked to Maoist rebels.

About 115 people were injured when 13 cars of the Lokmanya Tilak Gyaneshwari Express derailed, capsized on a paralell track and were slammed by a cargo train, authorities said.

Indian authorities gave different theories about the derailment.

Railway minister Mamata Banerjee said a bomb explosion caused the passenger train to jump rails.

‘The blast was carefully timed,’ Banerjee said on television. ‘The tracks were sabotaged 15 minutes before the train passed over them.'”
