Bodies pile up in eastern India after a train ran them over when they were crossing a railway track on Monday.
Many were reportedly Hindu pilgrims who had just disembarked from two trains at Dhamara station in Bihar state.
This man says the victims were among 15,000 to 20,000 people headed to a local temple.
He says the train was travelling at least 100 kilometres an hour.
After the incident, an angry mob reportedly attacked the train driver, setting coaches on fire and holding railway staff hostage.
