One killed in India train crash
Police in the northern Indian state of Bihar say one person was killed and 10 others injured when two passenger trains collided on Tuesday.

A police spokesman said that an express train travelling from Gwalior in central India to Barauni rammed into a stationary train, in the Chapra district.

Senior railway officials have described the incident as a minor one.

They say it was probably caused by a human error.

India's railway minister, Nitish Kumar, has said he will order an investigation into the incident.
