    A rescue worker stands near a high-speed train which derailed in Eckwersheim, near Strasbourg, eastern France, Saturday Nov.14, 2015. An official says a high-speed train undergoing a test run has derailed and plunged into a canal in northeast France, killing at least seven people and gravely injuring at least a dozen others.

    Ten people died when a high-speed train derailed in France on Saturday morning while crews were testing a new line from Paris to Strasbourg. 

    The train fell into a canal after hitting a bridge and catching on fire. 

    All 49 people aboard the train were employees of the national French railway system, SNCF. 

    French authorities said the derailment had nothing to do with Friday's deadly attacks.
