More Than a Dozen Dead in Moscow Train Derailment

Tue, 15 Jul 2014 11:16:26 +0000

iStock/Thinkstock(MOSCOW) -- At least 15 people are dead and dozens more injured after a Moscow subway train derailed during the Tuesday morning rush hour.

Authorities say terrorism did not play a role in the accident and are blaming a power surge for triggering an alarm that caused the trains to stop abruptly.

Hundreds were stranded between two stops, making the rescue in the underground tunnels especially difficult.
