France train disaster: 'Too soon to judge' says Hollande

French President Francois Hollande has said it is too soon to judge whether poor upkeep on the railways was to blame for a crash which left six people dead and 200 injured.

The train slammed into the station platform after derailing in the town of Bretigny-sur-Orge, 20 minutes into a three-hour trip to Limoges in central France.

Susana Mendonca reports.
