Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has expressed her deepest condolence over a train accident near Balasore, Odisha, India, that killed at least 288 and injured hundreds.

This information was given in a condolence message sent by the prime minister's press wing on Saturday.

At least 288 people were killed and more than 850 injured in a horrific three-train collision in India, officials said Saturday, the country's deadliest rail accident in more than 20 years.

Images from the crash site showed smashed train compartments torn open with blood-stained holes near Balasore, in the eastern state of Odisha.

Carriages had flipped over entirely in the crash late on Friday.

Rescue workers searched for survivors trapped in the mangled wreckage, with scores of bodies laid out under white sheets beside the tracks.
