At least 12 are dead and dozens more were injured this morning in a train collision in southern Italy, according to fire officials.
Italian news agency ANSA reports the accident happened on a single track between the towns of Ruvo di Puglia and Corato.
Pictures of the mangled crash show the two trains veering sharply off the tracks, while a video shows rescue crews arriving on scene to pull survivors from the wreckage.
Italy's prime minister, Matteo Renzi, said the train crash "is a moment of tears" and pledged not to stop until a cause was determined, reports The AP.
Renzi spoke in Milan but was returning to Rome to monitor the situation.
