10 killed, 33 injured in German train collision

The BBC reported that at least 10 had been killed and 33 people were hurt when a regional passenger train and a freight train clashed in the eastern part of Germany on Saturday 22:30 local time.
The reason why the two trains crashed near the city of Magdeburg in the Saxony-Anhalt state was not immediately clear.
The 100-capacity HarzElbeExpress train was carrying 45 passengers at the time of the crash, according to a source from Veolia running the service.
Xinhuanet quoted a local media when an eyewitness said that one of the two trains was derailed, which resulted into the fatal collision near the Hordorf station.
The wreckage sent both trains into flames and due to the force of impact, some carriages were pushed out of the tracks.
A regional police spokesman said that the rescue operations are still ongoing and that there could be more deaths.
The AFP reported that over 150 firemen, cops and rescue workers went to the scene.
