At least 10 people were killed and more than 70 injured Sunday when most of a passenger train derailed in northwestern Turkey, Turkish authorities said.

Tekirdag governor Mehmet Ceyhan said the area where the derailment happened was muddy from heavy rain and hard to reach.

Health Ministry Undersecretary Eyup Gumus put the number of fatalities at 10 and the people injured at 73, based on initial reports from the scene, according to Turkey's official Anadolu news agency.

The first television pictures showed several train carriages laying on their sides, and shocked injured being taken away on stretchers as rescue workers picked through the wreckage. Five of its six cars derailed.

Deputy Prime Minister Recep Akdag said today that heavy rain had caused the ground under the rails to collapse, causing Sunday's crash.

Erdogan said all state institutions were "using every means available to help", vowing that there would be a comprehensive investigation into the "tragic accident", the presidency said.

Transport Minister Ahmet Arslan said seven other trains had used the route earlier Sunday but the rain caused "extraordinary swelling".

About 100 ambulances were at the scene, along with helicopters from the Turkish army.

In a statement, Erdogan said the train accident is being investigated thoroughly and conveyed his condolences to the families of those who lost their lives in the accident.
