  1. Seven killed in Uruguay TV stunt

    The accident happened in front of thousands of children
    A runaway train killed seven people and injured at least 11, severing some of their limbs, during the filming of a TV show in Uruguay, police said.
    The accident occurred during a "test of strength" challenge to raise money for a hospital in Young, 380km (235 miles) west of the capital, Montevideo.

    Contestants were pushing and pulling a train and two carriages when the vehicle gained speed and ran them over.

    Local authorities have declared three days of mourning.
