Because many of them are in a serious condition, the balance of the victims may not be definitive. In addition, a number of passengers are still trapped in the wreck of the set, local officials said.

The cause of the collision was, according to the researcher's earlier findings, a failure of the human factor.

Most passengers in the trains were Angolans and Chinese, said the DPA.
