Pakistan train crash – At least 35 killed & 20 trapped in wreckage.

BREAKING NEWS - AT least 35 people were killed and dozens more injured in a horror head-on train crash in Pakistan early on Monday.

Rescuers and local villagers were desperately trying to pull survivors from the wreckage after the Millat Express intercity came off the tracks and was hit by another express before dawn.

Around 1,100 people were on board the two trains, officials said.

Between 15 and 20 passengers were still trapped in the mangled carriages hours later, said police chief Umar Tufail.

Heavy machinery had not reached the scene four hours after the crash near Daharki in a remote part of Sindh province, local media reported.

"The site is far and that's why we are facing some trouble in the rescue work," a railway spokesman said.

He added at least six wagons were destroyed.

Huge crowds gathered around the overturned carriages, some climbing over the mangled wreckage in an attempt to reach victims.

Villagers were the first to rush to the site, and later soldiers and rescue workers tried to cut their way through shredded metal.
