Passengers killed in DR Congo freight train derailment

"Stowaway passengers killed in DR Congo train derailment"
Seems to me the description stowaway is open to interpretation. Almost all trains and trucks in Africa have passengers aboard , I find it hard to believe the railway officials did not know there were people riding the train. Of course once there is an accident , the offical line comes out.

The only train trips I regret are the ones I didn't take.
