Spain Train Derailment
Relatives of the victims involved in a train accident react at a victims information point in Santiago de Compostela, Spain, on Thursday, July 25, 2013. Relatives of victims from a train crash in northwestern Spain sobbed and hugged each other Thursday near a makeshift morgue in a sports arena for the victims as the death toll rose to 78 and investigators tried to determine the cause. The train jumped the tracks and at least one passenger told a radio station that it appeared to be going very fast as it went into a pronounced curve while approaching the station in this Catholic shrine city on the eve of a major religious festival.
