AJACCIO, France, Nov 21 (Reuters) Two trains collided on the French island of Corsica today, injuring 24 people, a local government official said.

The trains hit each other on a stretch of single track that links the island's two main towns -- Ajaccio and Bastia. Some passengers suffered cuts and broken bones but the injuries were not life threatening, the official said.

Earlier today the SNCF state railways reported widespread sabotage to signalling installations on its mainland network but there was no indication of any criminal damage to the rail network on Corsica.
