    At least 41 people are dead and more than 60 injured after a Taiwanese train carrying some 500 passengers derailed in a tunnel

    At least 41 people are dead and more than 60 injured after a Taiwanese train carrying some 500 passengers derailed in a tunnel


    It appears to have hit a truck that slid off a road leading to a nearby construction site.

    The crash is the island's worst rail disaster in at least four decades.

    Images of the crash showed some carriages inside the tunnel ripped apart from the impact, others crumpled, hindering rescuers reaching passengers.
