Indian Train Blast kills more than 60 People

DEEWANA, India (Reuters) - Two bombs exploded on board a train bound from India to Pakistan, sparking a fire that killed at least 66 passengers on Monday, in an apparent attempt to sabotage a peace process between the nuclear-armed rivals.

Most of the victims were Pakistanis, but some Indians and three railway policemen died in the attack, officials said.

Bodies were laid out in blue bags between huge slabs of melting ice in a morgue in the nearby town of Panipat. Officials said about 30 of the bodies were charred beyond recognition.
