Canadian officials are now telling the families of the 30 people missing in a runaway oil train crash over the weekend that all are presumed dead.

With 20 bodies found, that would put the death toll from Saturday's derailment and explosions at 50.

The head of the U.S. railway company whose oil train crashed into the Quebec town has blamed the engineer for failing to set the brakes properly.

Parts of the devastated area had been too hot and dangerous to enter and find bodies even days after the disaster. Some 60 had been presumed missing earlier.
