500 Italians Die as Train
Breaks Down in Tunnel

NAPLES, Mar. 5 (Reuter) - More than 500 Italians died - most of them from asphyxiation - when a train broke down in a railroad tunnel in central-southern Italy Friday. The weight of hundreds of Italians who swarmed on the train as it traveled eastward disabled the engine. Engine fumes caused a majority of the deaths.
