40 still missing in deadly Canada oil train crash

LAC-MEGANTIC, Quebec (AP) - Some 40 people are still missing, two days after a runaway oil tanker train ignited explosions and fires in the Quebec town of Lac-Megantic.

Five people have been confirmed dead, but officials say the death toll is likely to rise.

All but one of the train's 73 tanker cars were carrying oil when they somehow came loose early Saturday morning.
