      2 Moscow subway workers detained in deadly crash

      MOSCOW (AP) - Investigators say they have detained two Moscow subway workers in the wake of a deadly rush-hour derailment that killed 22 people and injured 136 others.

      Russia's major investigative agency said in a statement Wednesday it had detained a senior Moscow track foreman and his assistant.

      More than 1,100 people were evacuated Tuesday after a train derailed between two stations in western Moscow. The rescue operation lasted more than 12 hours.
