At least twenty people have lost their lives and dozens been injured when two passenger trains crashed head-on in Italy.
The crash happened on a single stretch of track between the towns of Corato and Andria in the southern heel of the country.
An aerial image showed train carriages smashed and crumpled by the force of the impact.
The collision took place on a single line of track in the countryside and the trains are reportedly often packed with commuters.
Italian media claims work had been taking place to add an extra line to ensure a collision like this could not happen.
