Argentina audits train co. after crash killed 51
BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) -- Argentina's government is sending auditors in to monitor the commuter rail company whose train crashed last week, killing 51 people and injuring 703.
The government says the auditors will oversee every aspect of the Trains of Buenos Aires, opening the books and checking the machines to guarantee the security of passengers and the continuity of service.
The transportation and planning ministers said Tuesday that the intervention will last at least 15 days or however long it takes for a criminal investigation to determine responsibility for the crash.
President Cristina Fernandez has said she'll wait until the cause is known before deciding whether to end the TBA's contract.
