Photo gallery of Spain train crash: at least 79 dead


The Spanish newspaper El Pais has online video of yesterday's train crash at Santiago de Compostela in Galicia. It shows the Alvia train leaving the tracks on a curve and hitting a wall. El Pais also put up a gallery of photos from the scene, including raw shots from the beginnings of the rescue showing many bodies strewn along the tracks. The bodies are covered, but the gallery is not for the squeamish.
