Jakarta, Indonesia:  A railway official says at least three people were killed when a passenger train hit mounds of mud after heavy rain triggered a landslide in central Indonesia. Two others are in critical condition.


Junerfin, a spokesman for the Indonesian Railway Company, says the train derailed at a junction in Tasikmalaya, a district on Java island, late on Friday.

He says three coaches derailed into a 10-meter (32-feet) deep ravine when a landslide buried part of the tracks and the train's brakes could not stop it from hitting mounds of mud.
