Fire engulfs Pakistani train, kills at least 65

A fire swept through a train in Pakistan on Thursday, killing at least 65 people and injuring nearly 40. The incident took place after a gas canister that passengers were using to cook breakfast exploded, destroying three of the train’s carriages. Authorities said people sneaking stoves onto trains to prepare meals on long journeys is a common problem.

70+ people burned to death because safety rules were ignored?!? Sadly I don't think this tragedy will lead to any changes.

America certainly is the best country on Earth. I'm so glad I don't live in some mountainous shithole of a country where people bring camp stoves onto a crowded train. People often complain about our overreaching government, and some instances perhaps go too far, but this is the alternative.
