Firefighters were still removing injured people from the bus more than half an hour after the crash tonight.

More details to come.

A CSX train struck the bus at a crossing in downtown Biloxi and dragged the vehicle about 300 feet down the tracks, according to the report.

Drought In Somalia Claims 110 Lives In Just 48 Hours
The United Nations believes a million and a half people are affected by the drought and worsening food crisis in the country. Capital city Mogadishu is bearing the brunt of the catastrophe as thousands of people have flocked here to find food.

Police are talking to the bus driver and the train operator. "We're not sure about the bus itself, why it was stopped, if it was having engine problems or what", he said. Charter buses often carry patrons to casinos in Biloxi, but Creel says he doesn't know where this bus was headed.

It is a "terrible, chaotic scene, but it is under the control", a local police chief said.

The bus was marked as belonging to Echo Transportation, which Texas corporate records show is a unit of a company called TBL Group, based in Grand Prairie, near Dallas.

All 50 passengers were injured in the crash and at least one victim was airlifted to a nearby hospital. Some were trapped under the bus when the train it it, Robinson said.
