A speeding train has run over a crowd of revelers celebrating the Hindu Dussehra festival in the Indian state of Punjab. Some 60 people died in the accident, making it India's worst train disaster this year.
Among those arrested were two Punjab National Bank employees believed to be at the center of the fraud — India's biggest-ever bank scam. The third suspect is an official from celebrity jewelry designer Nirav Modi's firm.
While local and international media have been focusing on the tug-of-war between former PM Sharif and Pakistan's military, extremist parties are gaining strength in Punjab province. Shamil Shams reports from Lahore.
