Video: Trains smash into each other in West Bengal

The accident site in West Midnapore, West Bengal, has been strewn with mutilated bodies and belongings of passengers of the ill-fated Gyaneshwari Express.

The cause of the accident is still not confirmed -- with Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee saying it was a blast, while police and railway officials have said Maoists had placed a fishplate on the tracks to cause derailment.

Rescue teams are using gas cutters to cut through the panels of the bogies to extradite the bodies and save the injured.
