A train derailed Saturday near the Belgian city of Louvain, leaving several casualties, officials said.

A spokesman for the SNCB rail authorities said it was too early to confirm news reports that one person died and 25 people were injured in the derailment about 25 kilometres (15 miles) east of the capital Brussels.

Interior Minister Jan Jambon tweeted: "My thoughts go to the families and loved ones of the victims of the derailment in Louvain."

In neighbouring Luxembourg on Tuesday, the driver of a passenger train was killed after he ran a red light and collided with a freight train, officials said.
