At least one person was killed on Thursday after a train transporting passengers and coal derailed in southern Mozambique, the operating company says.
The accident occurred 146 kilometers north of Mozambique’s capital city of Maputo, the Mozambique Ports and Railways (CFM) operating company said on Friday, adding that dozens were injured and had been taken to a nearby hospital.
No additional details were given and the company had no immediate comment.
The train was travelling along a line linking Mozambique’s capital city and neighboring Zimbabwe. The railway system is used to transport coal between Mozambique and Botswana.
