Pakistan train crash kills four, scores hurt

Locals gather at the scene where two trains collided near Multan, Pakistan

"The last trapped victim has been extricated after four hours by cutting thick metal sheets of train cartridge with the help of hydraulic cutters," a provincial emergency service, Rescue 1122, said in report.

It said four people had been killed. Earlier, media put the death toll at six with more than 150 injured.

Pakistan's colonial-era railway network has fallen into disrepair in recent decades due to chronic under-investment and poor maintenance.

About 130 people were killed in July 2005 when a train rammed into another at a station in Sindh province, and a third train hit the wreckage.
