Half-built Kolkata flyover collapses

At least one person has been killed and several others injured after a flyover collapsed in the eastern Indian city of Kolkata (Calcutta), officials say.

Many people are feared trapped in the debris in the city’s Burrabazar area. Local media have reported the death toll may be as high as 10.

Television images showed people helping in the rescue with their bare hands.

The concrete and steel bridge, which was under construction, fell on to the traffic on a congested and busy road.
