Deadly train crash in northern India.

Summary: At least ten passengers have been killed and over 100 injured after an express train derailed in northern India.

At least ten passengers have been killed and over 100 injured as an express train derailed in northern India.

Nearly 12 coaches and the engine of the Kalka Mail, which runs from eastern Howrah to northern Kalka town, jumped the tracks near Malwa station in the Fatehpur district of northern India's Uttar Pradesh state.

The train, which was bound for Kalka, was running over 100 km per hour when the incident happened.

State-run Indian Railways carries around 30 million people every day, but has a patchy safety record because of ageing infrastructure.

Latest government data showed that 336 people were killed and 437 injured between April 2010 and mid-January 2011.
