Background: Thousands of people in the Yugoslav town of Zagreb - where 147 people died in the country's worst rail crash in August - crowded into the town's Mirogoj cemetry on Wednesday (9 October) to mourn the victims of the disaster.
Those killed, mostly Yugoslav migrant workers and some Greek and Turkish nationals, died when the train in which they were travelling from Belgrade to Munich, was derailed near the east entrance to Zagreb main railway station. All eight carriages overturned.
At Wednesday's ceremony, weeping mothers, wives and other relatives together with Government officials, laid hundreds of wreaths on the graves. The biggest wreath came from Yugoslavia's President Tito, who had already ordered a day of national mourning for the victims on September the first.
Forty-one of the dead have never been identified and were buried only recently at the cemetery.
The two drivers of the train have since been charged with grave offences against public safety and property under Yugoslav criminal law. If found guilty, they face maximum jail term of 20 years.
