Protests at Nato train attack
Serb reports say at least 10 train passengers died
Russia and China have protested at the Nato raid on a Yugoslav passenger train in which 10 people died.
A Foreign Ministry statement in Moscow said: "The death of innocent civilians can only be a cause of deep outrage.
In Beijing, the Foreign Ministry expressed "regret" at the bombing of the bridge, and urged Nato to stop its campaign "alleviate the humanitarian disaster" in Yugoslavia.
Belgrade says the train became stuck near the town of Leskovac after an attack on a nearby road bridge severed its power lines.
Nato jets then returned and struck the railway bridge. Two carriages were reported to have burst into flames and another two were thrown from the track.
Rail officials said there were foreigners on board the train which was bound for Salonika, in Greece.
Nato said the railway bridge was a vital supply line for Serbian troops in Kosovo - but there was no intention of hitting the train.
"I want to stress very strongly indeed that there was no intention whatever to cause damage to the train,'' he added.
"People were moaning, screaming for help," Tanjug quoted one of the rescuers, Dr Tomislav Cvetanovic, saying.
Dragan Ciric, 31, from Nis, said he scrambled through the window before his carriage became a ball of fire, Tanjug said.
Just before details of the train bombing were released, Nato foreign ministers vowed to continue the air offensive until President Slobodan Milosevic complies with demands for the future of Kosovo.
