As work continues to clear the site of the high speed train crash in Spain, many of those affected are still seeking answers as to what went wrong. Seventy-eight people were killed when the train derailed last Wednesday (July 24). The last passenger carriage has now been removed leaving only the locomotive on site. The driver, Francisco Garzon, is suspected of "recklessness" amid reports that the train was travelling much too fast. He's in police custody and is expected to talk about what happened when he's questioned by a judge on Sunday (July 28). Next to the police station where Garzon is being held, people have been collecting belongings recovered from the train. Santiago de Compostela has been in shock since the incident, which happened on the eve of a Christian festival where thousands of pilgrims gather. Celebrations were cancelled after the crash. An official memorial for the victims will be held on Monday (July 29).
