Bridge Collapse Kills Nine In Indonesia

At least nine people have been killed, and a further 30 injured, following a bridge collapse, in Indonesia.

A bridge connecting two small islands near the Indonesian resort island of Bali collapsed on Sunday, killing nine people and injuring at least 30, officials said.

There were too many people passing over the bridge for a religious ceremony when it collapsed, police officer Arendra Wahyudi said, adding some motorbikes also fell into the water.

The sea beneath the bridge was less than two meters deep, Wahyudi said, but many of the victims were crushed by debris.

All of the victims were locals, he said.
