At least 20 people killed, 150 injured in India flyover collapse

At least 20 people have been killed and more than 150 injured after a partially built flyover collapsed in the Indian city of Kolkata (Calcutta) Thursday.

The two-kilometer-long flyover had been under construction since 2009 and has missed several deadlines for completion.

It disintegrated onto a crowded street around lunchtime, crushing pedestrians, cars and other vehicles under concrete slabs and metal. It was located in one of Kolkata’s most densely populated areas with narrow lanes, and shops and houses built close together, making it difficult to get heavy equipment to the disaster scene.
