The Spanish Scientific Police on Saturday afternoon finished identifying the 78 people killed in the train wreck last Wednesday in Santiago de Compostela, thanks to DNA testing.

One of the three victims that had been unidentified turned out to be a man of French nationality, the High Court of Justice in the Galician region said.

The court said in a communique that the possibility exists, according to the forensic scientists, that the different remains they received in the process of recovering the bodies belonged to victims previously accounted for.

It seems certain, the source said, and always in hopes that the hospitalized patients survive, that the number of fatalities is 78, while there are 71 injured, of whom 31 are in critical condition. EFE
