Hitrino Train Disaster in Bulgaria Latest

The latest on the train disaster, not far from Dobrich in North-East Bulgaria, is that 8 are dead, over 20 injured, many with burns. The compensation for those who have lost their homes (or are very damaged) is just €162.50, which is pathetic .

If you search the internet, you can find places to donate money. It appears the antiquated rail system cause the explosion, the highly flammable load came in contact with electricity, Bulgarian railways has the worst safety record in the EU.The people affected are very poor, even by Bulgarian standards.Here is a place to donate to the Red Cross.
