At least 28 people dead and 73 injured after train hits bus in Granma province.

    The bus was dragged by the train until it fell off a bridge and was almost totally destroyed.
    Local residents rushed to the scene of the incident to help those injured, the report added.

    Police have been investigating the cause of the crash, which authorities have described as Cuba's deadliest accident in years.

    In June, 11 people were killed and 50 were injured when a truck flipped over in the Santiago area.

    Other vehicles such as trucks in rural areas are often used as makeshift buses where none operate.
