CALCUTTA, India — An overnight passenger train was derailed by an explosion then hit by another train early Friday as it traveled through a rebel stronghold of eastern India, officials said. A top government official said at least 15 people had been killed and 150 injured.

Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee told reporters that the explosion was believed to have been set off by Maoist rebels, who had called a four-day strike for the area starting Friday.
