Dozens killed in nighttime crash: Emergency personnel respond to the scene of a train derailment in Santiago de Compostela, Spain, on Wednesday. The train derailed, toppling passenger cars on their sides and leaving at least one torn open as smoke rose into the air. Dozens were feared dead, with possibly more injured. Officials canceled ceremonies planned for today, when Catholic pilgrims honor St. James, the disciple of Jesus whose remains are said to rest in a shrine. (Associated Press)
