The death toll from a train explosion in Tuscany rose to 22 Friday after three injured people died in hospital, Italian officials said.
The Civil Protection said about a dozen of the injured remained in serious condition.
A train carrying liquefied gas derailed around midnight Monday in the seaside town of Viareggio, setting off a massive explosion that consumed nearby homes. Most of the victims were severely burned and only about half of the dead have been identified.
Viareggio's damaged train station partially reopened Friday. Meanwhile, Italian railways Trenitalia said it had suspended transportation of all rail cars registered with U.S. rail and marine leasing company GATX.
The Vienna-based GATX Rail Europe owns the gas cars involved in the derailment. Italian officials have blamed the disaster on the breakage of a wheel axle of one of the cars.
