60 People Killed In Train Crash In Southern Congo
June 22, 2010
According to authorities, the train was taking a sharp corner between the Bilinga and Tchitondi villages, in a scarcely populated area.
It derailed on the curve, and crashed into a ravine.
The Ministry of Transport has said they are not completely sure of the final death and injury count, but that 60 bodies have been recovered so far.
A report by the BBC said that the railway has been poorly maintained since it’s creation in the late 1920′s.
