SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA, Spain —

Spain's royal family and leading politicians are to attend a Mass in the Catholic pilgrimage city of Santiago de Compostela in homage to the 79 people killed in the country's worst rail accident in decades.

The Mass is taking place Monday, a day after the train's driver, Francisco Jose Garzon Amo, was charged with multiple counts of negligent homicide.

Judge Luis Alaez released Francisco Jose Garzon Amo without bail late Sunday but ordered him to appear before court once a week and not to leave Spain.

Garzon was driven from the court in a police car to an unknown location.

Garzon was driving the train carrying 218 passengers that hurtled off the tracks Wednesday while apparently travelling well over the 80-kph (50-mph) speed limit.
