Four persons were killed and three persons wounded as a passenger express train rammed into an mini- bus on Tuesday at Basail sub-district of Bangladesh's Tangail district, 92 kilometers northwest of capital Dhaka, police said.

Mizanur Raman, police head of Tangail district, said the City Express train bound for capital Dhaka rammed into the mini-bus carrying seven passengers while it was crossing an unmanned level crossing at the sub-district.

Four persons, two women, a child and the bus driver, died at the spot and three others were injured.
