A passenger train rammed into a stationary freight train and burst into flames before dawn Tuesday, killing more than 20 people and injuring more than 35 others in southern India, officials said.

The train was going from Hubli district in the state of Andhra Pradesh to the neighboring state of Karnataka's capital Bangalore.
