Greece train hits house, 2 killed

At least two people have been killed and others seriously injured after a passenger train derailed in northern Greece, officials say. The train, travelling from Athens, struck a house when it left the track near the city of Thessaloniki. A resident at the property said he managed to jump from a balcony just before the train made impact.

Pictures from the town of Adendro showed smashed carriages. It is unclear what caused the train to derail. The train was carrying 70 passengers, most of whom were safely evacuated within three hours of the accident on Saturday night, according to reports. Police said that the cause of the crash had yet to be determined. The state-owned railway company Trainose said it had opened an investigation.
