An express train rounding a curve in northern Italy shot off the tracks, killing eight people and injuring at least 29. The train was half an hour into its trip from Milan to Rome when it left the tracks about 200 yards before a station in Piacenza, police said. The first passenger car--where some of the fatalities occurred--plowed into an electrical pylon, said Federico Manzella, a railway spokesman. Former President Francesco Cossiga was aboard the train but not hurt.

A head-on collision between two trains that killed 13 people in southern Italy was probably caused by a signal fault and human error, investigators said Friday. State railway officials said 34 people were injured in Thursday's crash just south of Calabria. Two cars hurtled off the tracks after the trains collided on a bend. Investigators said an automatic signaling system was out of order and a backup procedure between stations along the line appeared to have failed.
