Pak train accident death toll climbs to 19

Islamabad, November 18: The death toll from a deadly train accident in Pakistan's restive Balochistan province today rose to 19 after three of the injured passengers died, an official said today.

The engine and nine coaches of Rawalpindi-bound Jaffar Express derailed from track yesterday at Ab-i-gum area in Bolan district of the province. The train was coming from provincial capital Quetta.

Provincial Home Secretary Akbar Hussian Durrani said that more than 300 people were injured in the accident.

Train accidents are common in Pakistan. The railways have seen decades of decline due to graft, mismanagement and lack of investment.

Trains are often targeted by Baloch militants fighting for greater control over the mineral resources of the province.
