MULTAN, Pakistan (AP) — Police and rescue officials say two express trains collided in southern Pakistan and at least 25 passengers were killed. The Millat Express derailed and the Sir Syed Express train hit it soon afterward. Villagers, rescuers, and police were transporting the dead and injured passengers to nearby hospitals. It wasn’t immediately clear what caused the derailment and the subsequent collision. It occurred in Ghotki district in Sindh province. Train accidents are common in Pakistan, where successive governments have paid little attention to improving the poorly maintained signal system and aging tracks.
