Bangladesh train crash : At least 11 people — mostly women and children — were killed and more than 56 others injured after a train collided with a passenger bus at a railroad crossing in the city of Kaliganj in Bangladesh, early on Friday.

According to, the bus was carrying a bride’s family and friends back from a wedding, and the driver attempted to negotiate the unmanned railway crossing, about 28 miles from the nation’s capital Dhaka, without noticing the incoming train.
