Italy train crash: 10 killed

people have been killed and dozens more hurt in a head-on collision involving two passenger trains in southern Italy, reports say. The two trains were on a single-track line at the time of the crash, between the coastal towns of Bari and Barletta.

Emergency services are trying to free passengers from the wrecked carriages near the town of Andria. It was unclear what led to the collision which happened in good weather at 11:30 local time (09:30 GMT) in the southern region of Apulia.

Italian reports said one of the trains had come from Andria, and the other from Corato, a short distance to the south-east.

Both trains had four carriages and images from the fire service showed wreckage strewn across a large area. Rescuers set up a field hospital at the scene to help care for the large number of wounded passengers.
