At least nine people were killed and scores more injured, police say, after two passenger trains collided in the German state of Bavaria.


The head-on crash happened near Bad Aibling, a spa town about 60km (37 miles) south-east of Munich.


The trains' operator said both trains had partially derailed and were wedged into each other.

Emergency teams, some winched in by helicopter, worked for hours to free casualties from the wreckage.


Regional police said in a tweet (in German) that nine people had been killed. They said about 100 were injured, of whom 50 were seriously hurt.


The drivers of both trains and two train guards were among those killed.
