Dahakri: Pakistan Railways officials said Tuesday that at least 63 people had died in a double train accident in a remote part of southern Sindh province a day earlier.

They issued two lists of the dead that included 12 unidentified people from the accident, which saw a north-bound passenger train derail early Monday before being struck minutes later by an express coming from the opposite direction.
