    Spain's transportation secretary said Thursday that a passenger train that derailed Wednesday was traveling too fast, giving credence to media reports that suggested it might have been moving at as much as twice the speed limit around a curve. The derailment, one of the worst in Spanish history, left 78 people dead and 140 injured. The train was arriving at Santiago de Compostela, ahead of a major Christian festival in the religious city. Passenger cars were toppled on their sides, and one was torn open.
