WORLD – 22 dead in the city of Kolkata in India


In the Indian city of Kolkata, an overpass collapsed on Thursday, causing the death of at least 22 people and leaving dozens missing. Major General Anurag Gupta from India’s National Disaster Management Authority, told CNN early on Thursday evening that “authorities didn’t then know how many people were driving across the bridge when it fell or how many more remained trapped.” Gupta added that at least 75 others suffered injuries in the busy commercial area of Kolkata’s center. Prime minister Narendra Modi said. “My thoughts and prayers are with the families of those who lost their lives in Kolkata,” Modi added. “May the injured recover at the earliest.”
