India train crash kills more than 20

Two passenger trains have collided near the city of Mathura in northern India, killing at least 22 people.

One of the trains, the Mewar Express, was stopped at a red signal when the Goa Express rammed into it from behind, a railway official said.

Rescuers used gas cutters to enter the train. About 22 people were injured and taken to hospital.
