Several people are killed and many injured in Istanbul train crash

Turkish media reports the incident happened near the Tekirdag area

Around 24 people have been killed and more than 300 injured after a passenger train derailed in Turkey, officials said today.

Health Minister Ahmet Demircan said 318 people required treatment after the accident with 124 still hospitalized.

Turkish media reported that the train left Edirne, on the border with Greece, bound for Istanbul with 360 passengers. Military and ambulance helicopters arrived at the accident scene.

Television images showed carriages turned on their sides and medics at the site.

FDA: Parasites In Del Monte Vegetables Causing ‘Explosive’ Diarrhea
All sizes had best-by dates of June 17 or earlier, so officials say there is little chance anyone still has any of the products. More than 200 people have now been infected by an outbreak of parasites linked to recalled vegetable trays from Del Monte.


The transport ministry in a statement said officials confirmed that because of heavy rains, the ground beneath the rails subsided away, causing the train to derail.

In a statement, Erdogan said the train accident is being investigated thoroughly.

The train derailed outside the village of Sarilar in the Corlu district of Tekirdag, reports said.

President Tayyip Erdogan's office said he had received information from the ministers of transport and interior about the incident, and sent his condolences. Emergency services have been dispatched to the scene.

Turkish authorities under Erdogan have over the last years sought to modernize Turkey's once ramshackle rail network, building several high speed inter-city lines.

The train involved in Sunday's accident appears to have been a slower train on a single track railway.

Ten people have been killed and 73 injured in a train accident in north-west Turkey, local broadcasters quoted the health ministry undersecretary as saying.

The train was headed to Istanbul.
