Over 30 dead in Spanish metro crash

Text size Aa Aa

At least 34 people have been killed in an accident on the underground metro system of the Spanish city of Valencia.

More than a dozen others were seriously injured when two train carriages came off the tracks and overturned, apparently after a wheel broke on a curve.

Excess speed is being examined as another possible cause of the disaster in Spain’s third largest city, which is due to welcome Pope Benedict in a few days time.
