More than 60 people have been killed and 100 hurt after a train ran into a crowd near Amritsar in India's northern Punjab state.

The victims were standing on the railway tracks watching celebrations for Dusshera, a Hindu festival marking the triumph of good over evil.

They did not hear the train approach as they watched a firecracker-filled effigy of the demon king Ravana burn.

Children are said to be amongst the dead.

Spectators were watching the effigy burn, and a fireworks display, when many started moving towards the railway tracks a short distance away.
