ODAWARA, Japan (AP) - Officials and media reports say two people are dead after a man set himself on fire aboard one of Japan's high-speed bullet trains.

Officials say the man who lit the fire and a female passenger were killed as the coach filled with smoke.

At least nine others were injured, one seriously, mostly from smoke inhalation.

An official says the man apparently poured oil over his head before setting himself on fire.
