Relatives of five women killed when a train overturned in Taiwan's Ali Mountain mourn for the deceased at a funeral parlor in Chiayi County yesterday, one week after the accident in which the five mainlanders were killed and more than 100 people injured. According to Chinese belief, after seven days, the souls of the deceased will revisit their families before leaving permanently. On April 27, a falling tree hit the last carriage of the train, causing several carriages to overturn.
