9 injured in derailed train

Nine people have been injured after a passenger train derailed in Russia's Sverdlovsk region in the Urals. Nine cars, including 8 sleeper coaches, reportedly went off the rails.

Three of the injured were taken to hospital and have now been discharged. The others didn't require hospital care.

Although an investigation is underway into the cause, local police say the most likely reason was a defective carriage.
