MOSCOW, July 26 (Itar-Tass) - No Russian citizens have been reported among victims in a railroad accident in Galicia, the north-west of Spain, Russian press attach· Alexander Korchagin told Itar-Tass.
The lists of passengers, who receive traumas, have been made up by hospitals. There are no Russian citizens in these lists, Korchagin said.
“Until now not all dead people had been identified,” the diplomat said, adding, “There are no grounds for believing that Russian citizens can be among those who have not identified yet.”
A train derailed in north-western Spain, killing at least 77 of its 218 passengers and injuring more than 100, officials in the Galicia region say.
Media reports say the train may have been travelling at more than twice the speed limit around a curve.
