    Outrage has taken hold of Mexico residents after one of the capital’s deadliest metro accidents in decades.

    According to authorities, a preliminary review suggested that a failure in the horizontal support beams caused the accident. The crash has also raised wider questions about safety on one of the world’s busiest metro systems, which carries millions of people daily across the capital’s urban sprawl.
