At least 146 people were killed when an overnight passenger train rolled off the track in northern India last week, the country's worst train accident in years. The train was about midway through a 27-hour journey between the cities of Indore and Patna when it slid off the tracks. The impact was so strong that one of the coaches landed atop another, crushing the one below.

In other images from the Asia-Pacific region last week, thousands of Filipinos, including more than a dozen nude students, protested against the hasty burial of Philippine dictator Ferdinand Marcos in a heroes' cemetery, in a growing political storm that's lashing the president who allowed the entombment.

Thousands of Bangladeshis marched in the capital's streets to protest the persecution of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar, one of several similar rallies in the region. Chanting "Stop killing Rohingya Muslims," they marched in Dhaka as violence in Myanmar's Rakhine state escalated, forcing thousands to leave their homes. The protesters burned an effigy of Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi and a flag of Myanmar.

Communist guerrillas in the Philippines warned that a peace deal with President Rodrigo Duterte's government is unlikely to be reached if he won't end the Philippines' treaty alliance with the United States and resist foreign control by other countries he's trying to befriend, like China and Russia.

For the fifth straight weekend, South Koreans marched in Seoul to demand the ouster of scandal-ridden President Park Geun-hye.
