At least 32 people were killed and 91 injured Sunday when a freight train carrying stowaways derailed in the Democratic Republic of Congo, police and medical services said.
The accident occurred in Kasai province, in the centre-west of the central African country.
Serious casualties were taken to the hospital in nearby Kakenge.
It is the third rail accident in about a month in central DRC. Five people were killed in a passenger train accident last month at the station in Kalenda.
Rail accidents in the sprawling former Belgian colony are frequent and often deadly because of decrepit track and ageing locomotives dating from the 1960s.
