Russia express train crash kills dozens

A bomb blast caused the derailment of a Russian express train, killing at least 26 people, intelligence officials say.

The Nevsky Express derailed in remote countryside on Friday night as the train travelled between the capital Moscow and St Petersburg.

A small crater had been found at the scene, which has led to speculation about a possible blast, as Richard Galpin reports.
