Jordan- 24 killed in train derailment after rains in Turkey


(MENAFN- Jordan News Agency) Amman, July 9 (Petra)-- A passenger train derailed in northwestern Turkey, killing two dozen people and injuring more than 300 others, officials said Monday.

Investigators believe that heavy rains caused the ground under the rails to collapse, causing Sunday's crash, Deputy Prime Minister Recep Akdag said.

The train was heading to Istanbul from Edirne, on the border with Greece, with 362 passengers and six crew members on board.
