The train that derailed in northwestern Spain, killing at least 77 people, did not have "any technical problems" and had been inspected just hours earlier, the head of the state-owned Renfe railway company said Thursday.

"What we know is that the train did not have any technical problems, the train had passed an inspection that same morning," Julio Gomez-Pomar Rodriguez told Cadena Cope radio station after Wednesday's derailment, Spain's deadliest rail disaster in decades.
