At least 14 people, including two children, were killed on Saturday when a train collided with a packed motorcycle rickshaw in Pakistan's eastern Punjab province, officials said.
The passenger train travelling from the country's financial hub Karachi to Punjab capital Lahore crushed the rickshaw on a road crossing which had no barrier.
"The accident occurred in Khanpur town of district Sheikhupura, around 40 kilometres northwest of Lahore," Salim Niazi, a local police official, told AFP.
Officials said at least two children were among the dead.
