"Stowaway passengers killed in DR Congo train derailment"
Seems to me the description stowaway is open to interpretation. Almost all trains and trucks in Africa have passengers aboard , I find it hard to believe the railway officials did not know there were people riding the train. Of course once there is an accident , the offical line comes out.
