A high-speed train carrying 240 people on board from Germany derailed in the Swiss city of Basel late Sunday, local media cited a spokesman for the German rail company as saying.

The engine car and one carriage derailed as the train arrived at Basel's central SBB station, he said. 

The train was on its way from Berlin's Ostbahnhof station to the Swiss resort town of Interlaken.
