At least two people were killed when a tourist train derailed in the Alps in southern France, local emergency services said on Saturday, reports AFP.
The Train des Pignes, a small private railway which operates on a single track between Nice and Dignes-les-Bains, came off the rails when it hit a rock that had fallen from the surrounding hills, according to local daily Nice Matin.
Jean Ballester, mayor of the town of Annot near where the train derailed, said he had been told the dead included a British woman and a Russian woman.
“We still need confirmation on this,” he told the i<TELE television network.
