In the context of recently damaged Vande Bharat train after collision with cattle, an image of a damaged train is being widely shared claiming that it shows the front part of a train that was damaged after hitting cattle in Europe. Let’s verify the claim made in the post.
Claim: Image of a train damaged in Europe after collision with cattle.
Fact: According to multiple news reports, image shows a train damaged after collision with another train in Tunis, Tunisia on 21 March 2022. Tunisia is an African country. Hence the claim made in the post is MISLEADING
According to these reports, at least 72 people were injured when two trains of ‘National Company of Tunisian Railways’ collided on 21 March 2022 in the south of Tunisia’s capital Tunis.
However, it should be noted that Tunisia is an African country, not a European nation. Moreover, the image shows a train damaged due to collision with another train and not with cattle.
To sum it up, image of damaged train in Tunisia after collision with another train falsely shared as image of damaged European train.
