Four people including three soldiers were killed when a train crashed into an army truck in southwestern Finland on Thursday.

The army said on its website that three conscripts died and another four were injured in the accident in the Raseborg area at around 8 am (0500 GMT).

Police said on Twitter that one train passenger had also died and many more were injured.

Local media reported that the army vehicle, which was left a tangled wreck in a snow-covered forest, was taking part in a military excercise at the time.

Eleven people were taken to two hospitals in the region, Finnish news agency STT said.
