A high-speed train undergoing a trial on a new line from Paris to Strasbourg derailed yesterday near the German border, killing five people.
Pictures from the scene showed the locomotive partly submerged in a canal alongside the tracks, with other parts lying broken and detached in a field beside the track. Medical units and police divers attended the scene.
