The bodies of five more Japanese victims of the Nov. 11 fire aboard an alpine funicular train in Austria were identified Thursday, bringing to nine the number of Japanese confirmed to have been killed in the fire, the Japanese Embassy in Vienna said.

Identified were Hirokazu Oyama, 24, and Masanobu Onodera and Tomohisa Saze, both 14-year-old students at Inawashiro Junior High School in Fukushima Prefecture, embassy officials said. The names of the remaining two were not released at the request of their families.
