SARDIHA, India — A bomb planted by suspected Maoist rebels derailed an overnight passenger train which was then hit by a cargo train in eastern India on Friday, killing at least 65 people and injuring an additional 200, officials said.

The derailment took place in an isolated, rural stronghold of India's Maoist rebels who have stepped up attacks in recent months and had called for a four-day general strike starting Friday.
