Packed passenger train derails outside Paris
PARIS (AP) -- An official for France's national railway says that a packed intercity train derailed while transporting passengers from Paris to Limoges.
It's not yet clear if anyone has been hurt.
SNCF's Jean-Paul Boulet says the train was carrying some 350 passengers when it derailed Friday evening at 5:15 p.m. (1515 GMT) and crashed into the station at Bretigny-sur-Orge, some 20 kilometers south of Paris.
He says four carriages piled up.
He could not say whether there were any casualties. France's transport minister is heading to the site.
