2 People Killed As Moscow Bridge Collapses

Two people were killed when a road bridge collapsed in Moscow on Monday when its support girders gave way, a spokesman for the Emergencies Ministry said.

The spokesman said the bridge was in the western administrative district of the city.

He added that fragments of the bridge had fallen on to two railway lines on the westbound Moscow-Smolensk route, damaging live wires and preventing movement of trains.

Emergency teams were working at the site to restore train traffic, the spokesman said.
