Silent tribute for Belgian rail crash victims

Text size Aa Aa

A minute’s silence has been held across the Belgian rail network in memory of those who died in Monday’s train crash.
 
Authorities say 18 people were killed and 171 injured, while three more are unaccounted for.
 
Investigators say they have recovered a second black box that will help provide answers to how the commuter trains collided at rush-hour, just outside Brussels.
 
According to the provincial governor Lodewijk De Witte one of the trains appeared to have missed a stop signal.
 
Meanwhile, Eurostar says services between Brussels and the UK have been cancelled until Monday as clean-up operations at the crash site continue.
