hi,

Two Indians are among the 62 people killed after a Dubai airliner crashed......

Generally we use passive voice for: 62 people were killed.... But in the above sentence 62people killed in active voice.

Could anybody clarify my doubt ?

Regards,
Sri.

    It's actually the past participle. This is a common construction which is equivalent to saying "... people (who were) killed ...".
