One dead, 27 hurt in Belgium train derailment

One person died and 27 others were injured — three of them seriously — when a train derailed Saturday shortly after leaving a station east of Brussels, officials said. The train carrying 85 passengers derailed four minutes after leaving Louvain bound for the North Sea coast via the Belgian capital, the SNCB railway authority said. “Rescue workers confirm the death of one person, three seriously injured and 24 others hurt,” a Belgian official told AFP on condition of anonymity.
