Rescuers have been searching through the night for passengers trapped on the trains that toppled when a swollen river struck the tracks in Madhya Pradesh state, railway officials said. Roughly 300 people were rescued after about 10 of the trains' carriages derailed outside the town of Harda at about 11.30 pm (1800 GMT) on Tuesday, police and other officials said.
