Thirteen children were killed on Thursday (April 26) when a school van collided with a train at an unmanned railway crossing in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, a railway official said.

The accident took place early in the morning when the children were on their way to school. There were 22 children in the vehicle and the cause of accident is not yet known.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has ordered a probe into the incident and also announced an ex-gratia amount of $2992 for the next-of-kin of the deceased.

This is the second major accident involving school children in a little over two weeks. At least 24 children and three adults were killed when a school bus plunged off a mountain road in the northern Indian state of Himachal Pradesh on April 9.
