Swiss train derailed in landslide

A train has derailed at the top of a gulley after running into a landslide near the Swiss ski resort of St Moritz.

Eleven people are reported to have been injured and taken to nearby hospitals by helicopter, but there appear to have been no fatalities.

The accident left one carriage hanging over the edge of the ravine, while another plunged down before before lodging behind a tree.

The landslide happened after heavy rain in eastern Switzerland overnight.
