Accident in Taiwan

A train carrying around 366 passengers from Taipei to Taitung derailed last Sunday, killing at least 22 people and injuring 171 others.

The Puyuma express is a type of railway service on Taiwan Railways launched in 2013, and it travels up to 150 kilometres per hour.

One hundred and twenty soldiers are working alongside firefighters with cranes to help find trapped people, and others are investigating the cause of the derailment.

Difficult words: launch (open), derail (leave the tracks).
