A runaway train carrying hundreds of people to the Kenyan port of Mombasa derailed at high speed in a safari park, killing at least 32 people and injuring at least 100. Police said five of the dead were foreigners, one of whom was a Frenchwoman. They could not immediately provide the nationalities of the other four. A police spokesman said it was too early to determine the cause of the predawn accident, but the train's crew said the train ran out of control after its brakes failed.
