4 killed, 26 injured as train derails in central Iran

PanARMENIAN.Net - Four people were killed and 26 injured late on Friday, Nov 9, when a train derailed in central Iran, according to the state-run IRNA news agency.

The train was carrying 324 passengers from the southeastern city of Zahedan to the capital, IRNA quoted the head of Iran’s Red Crescent rescue corps, Mahmoud Mozafar, as saying.

“A passenger train was derailed near the city of Yazd on Friday night. Unfortunately a passenger and three train crew were killed,” Mozafar said.

Derailments are rare in Iran but in 2004 a freight train carrying fuel and fertilizer derailed and exploded near the northeastern city of Neishabour, killing 289 people.
