Authorities say seven people have been killed and 70 injured in a subway train collision in Washington DC.
The city's mayor Adrian Fenty held a press conference where he revised an earlier reported death toll of nine.
Carriages of one of the trains came to rest on top of the other after the collision near a station during a rush hour, officials said.
The female driver of the moving train - which crashed into the back of a stationary train - was among the dead.
The crash - the worst in the 33 years of the Metro system - happened above ground between Fort Totten and Takoma at 1700 local time (2200 BST).
