SHANGHAI - Two subway trains collided in central Shanghai on Tuesday injuring more than 200 passengers, three critically , prompting renewed public anger just two months after a deadly crash between two high-speed trains.

The collision occurred in central Shanghai, near the Yu Yuan gardens, a well-known tourist attraction, after a signal failure meant staff had to direct trains by telephone, state media said.

The subway operator said more than 200 people had been taken to hospital, three of whom were seriously injured.

Ambulances rushed to the Yu Yuan station and emergency personnel were seen carrying injured passengers out, Reuters witnesses said.
