Poland's President Bronislaw Komorowski has visited survivors of the country's deadly train crash.

Komorowski said that when rescue efforts are over, he would make an announcement about a period of national mourning.

Prime Minister Donald Tusk also arrived at the crash site with several other government officials early Sunday.

shows rescuers are working at the train collision site. An uncertain number of people were
killed and around 60 were injured in a train collision in southern Poland on Saturday, the
country's transport minister told a local TV station. (Xinhua)

Tusk said it was too early to speculate about the cause of the collision, but added that human error could not be ruled out.

16 people were killed when two passenger trains collided head-on in the south of the country late on Saturday.

Tusk says it is the most tragic train catastrophe in Poland’s history.
