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.
Local television showed footage of dozens of locals attempting to rescue the children from the vehicle's mangled wreckage.
India has some of the world's deadliest roads, claiming the lives of more than 150,000 people each year.
Earlier this month, 23 children and four adults were killed when a driver lost control of a school bus, which plunged into a 100-metre deep gorge north of Delhi.
India is home to hundreds of railway crossings that are unmanned and particularly accident prone, with motorists often ignoring oncoming train warnings.
Nearly 15,000 people die on the country's railways every year, according to a 2012 government report.
India has vowed to upgrade unattended railway crossings next year to reduce fatal accidents.
