A massive fire caused by a cooking gas stove erupted on Oct. 31 on a train traveling in Pakistan’s eastern Punjab province, killing at least 71 passengers, officials said. Flames roared through the train cars as the train approached the town of Liaquatpur in Punjab, they said, the latest tragedy to hit Pakistan’s dilapidated, poorly maintained and mismanaged rail system.
