Search for bodies continues between remains of wrecked trains in Italy

The Italian authorities are still searching for bodies in the wreckage of the two trains wrecked Tuesday in southern Afghanistan, while researchers continue to track a human alleged mistake to explain the disaster.

The Department of the Italian Civil Protection has indicated that the provisional balance stands at twenty-seven deaths and about fifty wounded, many of them in serious conditions.

The Government delegate in the province of Barletta-Andria-Trani (south), Clara Minerva, told SkyTG24 television network that so far have reached the Polyclinic of Bari twenty corpses.

However, it has developed a list with a total of twenty people who apparently traveled in convoys disaster victims according to their families and for the moment have not been located.

These people could belong numerous remains found in the last few hours during the cleanup of the area, by removing the damaged wagons and multiple pieces of body trains.

For this reason, emergency services are busy cleaning the area and release the railway section, a work expected to be completed in the coming hours.

At 12.30 local time (10.30 GMT) has been called a press conference to update the balance of tragedy and in the same part the Minerva itself, as well as members of Civil Protection and the Office of Trani, who is already investigating the facts.

The collision between the two trains occurred on Tuesday morning, as they walked the same line linking the towns of Andria and Corato, in the southern region of Apulia.

Bari Hospital has already completed the recognition of fatalities and, as explained by the doctor who was responsible for this, Francesco Nardelli, half of the bodies belong to young people.

The authorities keep track of an alleged human error that caused the disaster, as trains traveling on a single track and, apparently, one of them left his station behind schedule.

This event has sparked debate over aging infrastructure of southern Italy, as rail traffic in this area is managed by a telephone call between controllers, a system introduced fifty years ago.

Experts have advocated in various media it is necessary to establish a system of automatic train control.
