What the papers say

A speeding passenger train on route to Manilla in the Phillippines derailed killing at least 10 people when it fell into a ravine this week. The train was travelling at three times over the local speed limit (64km/hr) along a bad section of track where another derailment had occurred two months earlier. Officials believe the rails had been weakened by looters scavenging for scrap metal.
