6 August Near Multan, Pakistan

Thirty people were killed and at least 90 others were injured when the Hazara Express train derailed in Pakistan on Sunday, August 6, near the town of Multan. The train departed Karachi in the southern part of the country and was traveling to Havelian in the northern part of the country. Local workers, paramilitary troops and railway workers teamed up to pull the injured passengers from the wreckage. Bodies of the deceased were pulled out as well and taken to a hospital. The derailment caused the tracks from Karachi, both inbound and outbound, to be closed. A relief train was sent to assist, according to railways minister, Khawaja Saad Rafique.
