Train crash in DR Congo kills 24

Reports from the Democratic Republic of Congo say a train has overturned, killing at least 24 people, mostly children. More than 30 others have been injured.

The accident, in Kasai province, involved a freight train carrying stowaways.

Police said several wagons fell into a river and have yet to be searched so the number of victims could rise.

It’s the third rail accident in the area in recent weeks.

Correspondents say many trains in Congo date back to the 1960s and track hasn’t been properly maintained.
