MOSCOW — Russian emergency officials say a rush-hour subway train has derailed in Moscow, killing 19 people and sending at least 150 others to the hospital, many with serious injuries.

Alexander Gavrilov, deputy chief of the Moscow emergency services, said rescuers have recovered 7 bodies and are working to extract 12 more bodies from two wrecked train cars.

Moscow’s transit system has been previously targeted by terrorists but this time Russian officials have vehemently dismissed terrorism as a possible cause.
