TV pictures of the scene of last weekend's runaway train crash in the heart of the Canadian town of Lac-Megantic give some idea of the scale of the disaster. A week after the train and its 72 tankers of crude oil crashed and exploded into flames search teams have found 28 bodies. So far eight have been identified. They're still searching for another 22 still missing and feared dead. Grieving residents held a candlelight vigil for the victims on Friday night. On Saturday the bells of a local church were due to ring out 50 times in memory of those who lost their lives and those still undiscovered for whom hope has run out.
