At least 3 dead in Norway train derailment

Officials say three people were killed and four people were injured when an out-of-control train derailed and went downhill in Oslo, Norway.

The train operator, CargoNet, said in a statement on its Web site that 16 cars derailed in what it called a “serious” accident and that train traffic will remain affected throughout the day.

The National Accident Commission is on site and all train traffic to and from Alnabru has been stopped. Alnabru is the terminal where the train had been before it derailed.
