Train Derails In Iran, Four Killed

Iranian state media say a passenger train has derailed in central Iran, killing four people and injuring 35 more.

The train derailed outside the city of Yazd late on November 9.

Reports say the four dead included train operators and passengers.

The cause of the accident is being investigated.

Derailments are rare in Iran, but in 2004 a freight train carrying fuel and fertilizer derailed and exploded near the northeastern city of Neishabour, killing 289 people.
