Two arrested after sheep cause train accident

A 28-year-old shepherd and a 43-year-old livestock farmer in the region of Pella, northern Greece, were arrested on Monday after a flock of sheep owned by the latter and being tended by the former wandered into the path of an oncoming train, nearly causing a serious accident.

None of the passengers on the Thessaloniki-Florina train was injured, though 21 sheep were killed.
