Two trains collide on Rome's metro

At least two people have died and some 250 injured as two metro trains collided in the centre of Rome.
A train travelling a high speed hit a second train, waiting at the Piazza Vittorio underground station with its doors open, at 0747 GMT. One witness claimed that the impact caused the station's support beams to collapse. Up to 50 people have been injured, some seriously, and several have been trapped in the wreckage.'We are working to free people who are still trapped in the metal wreckage, our aim at the moment is to save lives,' fire brigade officer Luca Cari told Reuters.
