Bridge collapse in India claims 18 lives

At least 18 people have been killed after a portion of an under-construction bridge collapsed in the Indian city of Varanasi.

The death toll is expected to rise as rescue workers from the National Disaster Response Force try to recover a bus and six other vehicles that remain trapped under the cement blocks.

This is the city that Prime Minister Narendra Modi represents as a parliamentarian.
