Dozens killed in Taiwan railway crash - DW News

Dozens more were injured in the incident in eastern Taiwan. Many travellers were on the move during a holiday weekend, in which people traditionally tend to family graves. The government has ordered an independent investigation - after the initial rescue operation is complete.
