(AFP) Three people have been injured after a train travelling from the Italian city of Milan to Basel in Switzerland derailed.

The incident happened on Wednesday near the central Swiss city of Lucerne, police and railway officials said.

The Eurocity train, which was carrying 160 passengers and was operated by Trenitalia, had just left the station when a carriage overturned and fell across the track.

Lucerne police said three people were taken to hospital after the derailment, which Swiss media said would see Lucerne station closed at least until Thursday.
