After rail crash, Cameroonians vent grief, frustration with longtime ruler | Reuters

By Sylvain Andzongo and Joel Kouam | YAOUNDE/ESEKA, Cameroon YAOUNDE/ESEKA, Cameroon Cameroon observed a day of mourning on Monday for victims of a deadly rail accident that has killed at least 75 people and exposed widespread frustration with one of Africa's longest-ruling presidents.At the Eseka train station near where a packed passenger train carrying more than 1,300 people from Yaounde to the port of Douala derailed and flipped over last week, thousands of people gathered to mourn.Many wore black and carried small branches from the local "peace tree" associated with sorrow during the inter-religious service where they sang religious hymns.The official death toll from the accident is expected to rise further, with an unspecified number of unidentified bodies being kept in a Yaounde morgue, according to state television.The work has been complicated by the fact there were no official lists of passengers since many did not have tickets. "I still cannot find my brother who was on this train," said Arouna in Yaounde, who did not want to give his full name #Economy #markets #Africa #Argentina #transportation
