10 Killed 73 Injured In Turkey Train Derailment Report

State news agency Anadolu said five wagons came off the tracks as a result of the incident on Sunday in a region near the Greek border.

Ten people were killed and 73 were injured in a train accident in northwest Turkey on Sunday, television channels quoted the health ministry undersecretary as saying.

A passenger train has derailed in northwest Turkey, leading to deaths and injuries, according to local media reports.

An unnamed survivor told the private DHA news agency she had been in one of the cars that went off the tracks.

Erdogan said all state institutions were "using every means available to help", vowing that there would be a comprehensive investigation into the "tragic accident", the presidency said.

"Many of those injured have been taken off the site".


President Recep Tayyip Erdogan expressed his condolences over those who lost their lives in the accident that he said has "deeply upset the whole nation".

Investigators believe heavy rains caused the ground under the rails to collapse near Tekirdag, in the north-west of the country, according to deputy prime minster Recep Akdag.

About 100 ambulances were at the scene, along with helicopters from the Turkish army.

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.

Transport Minister Ahmet Arslan said seven other trains had used the route earlier Sunday but the rain caused "extraordinary swelling".

The train was carrying more than 300 passengers and was headed to Istanbul.
