At least 77 people died and 143 were injured when a train hurtled off the tracks along a high-speed line in northwest Spain Wednesday, a regional court spokesman said, increasing an earlier toll.

Rescue workers have recovered 73 bodies from the wreckage of the train while four other victims died in hospital, a spokesman for the Galicia regional high court told AFP.
