SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA, Spain —

Authorities say forensic experts have identified the last three bodies of 78 people who were killed when a Spanish train derailed at high speed.

They did not reveal the names of the dead, but said Sunday that all of the families had been notified. They say survivors and relatives can pick up personal things left behind by victims.

The train derailed and slammed into a concrete wall, with some of the cars catching fire. The train sliced through electricity pylons.

Francisco Jose Garzon Amo, the train driver who is currently arrested on suspicion of negligent homicide, is expected to give testimony to an investigating judge later Sunday.
