Foreign aid workers are making their way to the scene of this week's train collision and explosion at a rail station near North Korea's border with China. The North Korean government says 154 people died and hundreds more were injured. Others fear the toll will rise as more is learned about the accident. Eyewitnesses say many of the known dead are schoolchildren. Hear NPR's Scott Simon and NPR's Rob Gifford.
