Tuesday, 12 June 2018 04:37 AM

PARIS (AP) — France's transport minister said seven people have been slightly injured in a rare derailment of a suburban train near Paris caused by a large amount of overnight rainfall in the region.

Elisabeth Borne said on Franceinfo radio that three passenger cars of a RER B train came to rest on their side because of a landslide early Tuesday in Courcelle-sur-Yvette, southwest of Paris.

All passengers have been safely evacuated.

Catherine Guillouard, president of the public transport company RATP, said train traffic will be disrupted on the line for an undetermined period of time.

Photos on the social media show water flowing down a hole under the rails. A section of highway west of Paris has also been closed due to water on the road.
