At least 10 people were killed in a northwestern bangladesh town after a train hit a wedding party van at an unmanned crossing.

Local police chief koushik ahmed said, the Dhaka-bound train hit the van in Ullahpara, some 145 kilometres away from the capital, as 14 people were returning home from a wedding ceremony.

According to him, as the van neared an unmanned railway crossing without noticing the rushing train approaching, the crash occurred leaving eight people including the bride and the groom dead on spot.

He said, another two who were injured died in the hospital and the rest were injured.
