Celebrities and politicians from Pakistan and India joined to voice their grief and offer support and prayers for the victims of a deadly three-train collision in India.

Nearly 300 people were killed on Friday when two express passenger trains and one freight train collided in India’s eastern Odisha state on Friday, in one of the country’s worst rail accidents.

Initial reports suggest that a signalling error sent the Coromandal Express running south from Kolkata to Chennai onto a side track which slammed into a freight train. The wreckage derailed another express train running north from Bengaluru to Kolkata.
