Russia's major investigative agency said in a statement it had detained a senior Moscow track foreman and his assistant. Investigators said a new rail switch at the point where the train left the tracks wasn't properly installed during repairs in May and was attached to the rail only by a single 3-millimeter wire, according to the report.
