Croatian hospital officials say a French woman and a man holding dual Serbian and Spanish citizenship were among those killed in a train derailment in Croatia.

Six people died and 55 were injured when a two-car high-speed train derailed in a remote area of southern Croatia on Friday. It was carrying about 90 passengers from the capital Zagreb to Split on the south.

Simun Andjelinovic from the pathology department of the hospital in Split said Saturday the other four victims were Croatians.

The cause of the accident is being investigated, but results are not expected before next week.

Hospital officials say that 13 of the injured - including a child - are still hospitalized, but none is in a life-threatening condition.
