    A train derailment in Morocco on Tuesday left at least ten people dead and nearly 90 injured, the Sky News Arabia media outlet reported.

    Earlier in the day, the death toll reportedly stood at five people, while the number of injured amounted to 30. The incident took place between the Moroccan capital of Rabat and the northwestern city of Kenitra.

    At the same time, the Yabiladi media outlet reported, citing the deputy mayor of northwestern city of Sale, that at least five people died in the accident.

    Local websites suggested earlier that two trains had collided, though the official then refuted the information.
