Quebec disaster toll rises to 60

The Canada police said they had opened a criminal investigation into the train explosion that likely killed 50 people in Lac-Megantic, and some 200 officers were scouring the town’s devastated center for clues.

Inspector Michel Forget said police did not believe terrorism was involved when a runaway train hauling 72 cars of crude oil barreled into town early on Saturday, derailed on a curve and exploded into a fireball that destroyed the center of the lakeside community. ‘I will not speculate on the evidence that we’ve recovered because (it is) secret,’ Forget said but indicated that some evidence might point to ‘criminal acts.’
