PARIS -- Police in eastern France say at least five people were killed when a train crashed into a bus carrying schoolchildren.

Police in the Haute-Savoie region on the Swiss border says at least 12 people were injured in the crash near the town of Allinges.

No further details about the cause of the crash Monday were immediately available. It is not clear whether children were among the victims.

French President Nicolas Sarkozy paid tribute to the victims during a speech on education in the presidential palace.
