A train travelling to Pakistan caught fire early Monday in northern India, killing at least 64 people, and an explosive device was found near the tracks, a railroad official said.

V.N. Mathur, general manager of the Northern Railway, said two suitcases stuffed with flammable material were also found at the scene — one inside a burned train car and the other on the railroad track.

At least the countries aren't changing their peace talk plans due to the terrorism:

The Bosten Globe

NEW DELHI -- Indian and Pakistani officials said peace talks between their countries would open in Delhi today as planned, reaffirming their determination not to allow the train bombing that killed at least 68 people Sunday night to upset sensitive negotiations between the longtime rivals.

Pakistan's foreign minister, Khurshid Kasuri, arrived in the Indian capital yesterday for the talks but first stopped to visit the wounded at a New Delhi hospital.

"Incidents like these that are very heart-rending and which affect both countries and both peoples can only add to the urgency of the need for cooperation," he told reporters. His words echoed those of his Indian counterpart, Pranab Mukherjee who had met wounded passengers at the same New Delhi hospital earlier in the afternoon. "We must show our determination in the peace process which we have begun," Mukherjee said after touring the hospital.
