Iran condoles with Italy over deadly bridge collapse


Tehran (ISNA) - Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi has expressed regret over the deadly collapse of a giant motorway bridge in the Italian city of Genoa.

In a statement, Qassemi offered condolences to the Italian government and people as well as the survivors of the tragedy.

About 30 people were killed in the incident on Tuesday.

The collapse, which saw a vast stretch of the A10 freeway tumble onto railway lines in the northern port city, came as the bridge was undergoing maintenance work and as the Liguria region, where Genoa is situated, experienced torrential rainfall.
