Two dead after train derails near Kanpur, India

At least two people are dead and more than 40 injured following the derailment of a train in India’s northern Uttar Pradesh state, the BBC reports.

Fourteen carriages of the Ajmer-Sealdah Express derailed near Kanpur in the early hours of Wednesday.

Officials said that all passengers had been rescued from the derailed carriages. The cause of the crash is not yet known.

More than 140 people died last month in another train crash near Kanpur.

Train accidents are fairly common in India, where much of the railway equipment is out of date.
