Denmark train accident: Toll reaches 8


Five women and three men were killed in Wednesday’s train accident on a bridge linking Denmark’s two main islands, police have said.

Police said on Thursday that they had identified four of the bodies but bad weather and severe damage to the train made an initial investigation difficult.

“Our investigation shows that there was a further two killed in the train,” Reuters quotes a police spokesman as saying.

The train with 131 passengers on board was heading towards the capital, Copenhagen, when it hit debris from a freight train.
