GENEVA Police in western Switzerland say several people have been injured when two passenger trains collided head-on.

Vaud canton (state) police spokesman Jean-Christophe Sauterel says rescue operations are still under way late Monday at the site on a regional line about 50 kilometers (31 miles) southwest of the capital, Bern.

Pictures on the website of local daily 24 Heures showed the mangled wreckage of the two trains still on the tracks.

Earlier this month, 79 people were killed in a high-speed derailment in Spain.
