Aftermath of India train crash in West Bengal

A crash involving two passenger trains in eastern India has killed at least 60 people, officials say.

A speeding passenger express hit another train waiting at a station in the town of Sainthia, West Bengal state, early on Monday.

The impact sent the roof of a coach into a footbridge above the tracks.

The BBC's Rahul Tandon explains what happened.
