MOSCOW (AP) - At least 19 people are dead and at least 150 have been taken to the hospital following a subway train derailment in Moscow.

Several cars left the track in a tunnel after a power surge triggered an alarm, which caused the train to stop abruptly.

Emergency officials say 7 bodies have been recovered and rescuers are working to pull out 12 more bodies.

City Hall officials say about 50 of the injured are in grave condition.
