At least one person killed in Quebec train blast -police

July 6 (Reuters) - At least one person was killed when a driverless freight train carrying crude oil derailed and exploded in the middle of the small eastern Canadian town of Lac-Megantic early on Saturday, police told a televised new briefing.

Police spokesman Michel Brunet did not answer when asked how many people were still missing after the blast, which leveled a large part of the town center. (Reporting by David Ljunggren in Ottawa; Editing by Eric Beech)
