Ten killed in German train crash


Ten people were killed and at least 81 injured when two passenger trains collided head-on at high speed in isolated countryside in southern Bavaria.

One passenger was still missing, police said, and 18 of those injured were in a serious condition.

The crash, about half way along a 6km stretch between the spa town of Bad Aibling and Kolbermoor, happened at a peak commuter time of 6.48am (5.48am Irish time) about 60km southeast of Munich and near the border with Austria.
