TRAIN20130715PARIS: Rail investigators said on Saturday (Sunday in Manila) that they had found a fault in the track where a train derailed near Paris, killing six people and injuring dozens more.

Friday’s derailment may have been caused by a connecting bar that had come loose at a rail switchpoint at Bretigny-sur-Orge station, about 25 kilometers south of Paris, said rail operator Société Nationale des Chemins de fer Français (SNCF).
