Officials say two passenger trains have derailed in central India as monsoon rains flooded a track.


   There were no immediate reports of casualties, but Junior Home Minister Kiren Rijiju said Wednesday that at least 250 people had been rescued.


   The Kamayani Express derailed late Tuesday night near the town of Harda in Madhya Pradesh, while the Janata Express derailed a few hours later.


   Railway official Anil Saksena said there had been flash floods in the region and the tracks had collapsed.
