Ten charged over India bridge collapse
Police in India have charged 10 people with homicide in connection with the collapse of a colonial-era footbridge last year that killed at least 135 people.
The 145-year-old suspension bridge in the town of Morbi was packed with sightseers when it collapsed on October 30, plunging hundreds into the Machchhu river below. It had reopened after repairs just days before.
Most of the victims were women and children who drowned.
Police in the western state of Gujarat have issued an arrest warrant for the boss of the company that managed the bridge and on Friday named him as the main accused in a charge sheet filed in a Morbi court, said Ashok Kumar Yadav, a top state police official.
