French Alps: Rock derails Nice to Digne-les-Bains train

Two people were killed when a falling boulder derailed a tourist train in the southern French Alps, local officials and firefighters have confirmed.

The train was travelling from Nice to the town of Digne-les-Bains on a line which crosses gorges and viaducts at up to 1,000m (3,200ft) above sea level.
