india's high speed train breaks down after launch

The semi high-speed train that was locally built in India has been reported to have broken down on its way back to New Delhi from Varanasi in northern Uttar Pradesh, just a day after it was launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. It was just making its first trip.

“There seems to be disruption [possibly due to] cattle run over. It wasn’t a scheduled commercial run,” Reuters partner ANI said in a tweet citing the railways ministry.

The Vande Bharat Express can run up to a maximum speed of 180 km/hour (110mph).
