Four dead as India train derails
(06-25 12:06)

A passenger train derailed in eastern India on Wednesday, killing four people after a blast suspected to have been triggered by Maoist rebels, a top railway official said.
Some 12 carriages of the Rajdhani Express, which was traveling from the capital New Delhi to the northeastern state of Assam, toppled around 2:00 am in Bihar's Saran district. Maoist rebels had earlier called for a strike in the area.
"Prima facie, it appears to be a case of sabotage,'' Railway Board chairman Arunendra Kumar told the Press Trust of India (PTI) news agency. "There was a blast on the track, which could have caused the derailment.'' --AFP
