In Cameroon, the trial against operators of a train that crashed killing 79 people and injuring 600 last year has begun in Douala. The train -- operated by CAM RAIL, a unit of French industrial group Bollore -- derailed in the town of Eseka en route from Yaounde to Douala. Twenty-eight victims of the crash and families of the dead filed a lawsuit against CAM RAIL and Bollore in November, accusing them of negligence and involuntary manslaughter. According to the lawyer representing the victims, 152 people on board the train are still unaccounted for. Many Cameroonians say the government has not done enough for the victims or made any effort to improve transport safety.
