As many as three thousand people are believe injured or killed following a train crash in North Korea.
A South Korean news agency says two trains carrying oil and liquid petroleum collided near the border with China.
North Korea has reportedly cut international phone lines to keep news of the crash from leaking out of the country.

One witness is quoted as saying the area around the station has quote "turned into ruins as if it were bombarded.''
Just hours earlier, North Korean leader Kim Jong Il (ill) had reportedly passed through the station as he returned from China.
A South Korean cable news channel says the casualties include Chinese living in the border region -- and that people are desperate to learn about the fate of their loved ones.

The assault conviction of a former high school football coach has been overturned.
(------------)

[SUPER=03-Halifax Co./June]


It was a Patrick Henry High School player that said head coach Kevin Clifford slapped him after a game in Halifax County in the fall of 2002.
The coach was convicted of misdemeanor assault last summer and fined fifty dollars.
Clifford resigned his position as coach, and also appealed the conviction.
Late yesterday, a circuit court judge in Halifax County reversed the verdict. The student did *not* initially report the incident but witnesses and an anynomous letter led to investigations by the Roanoke School System and social services.
Clifford's attorney said that delay created doubt about the claim.
