DENPASAR, Indonesia Oct 16 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 at 6 PM local time, police
officer Arendra Wahyudi said, adding some motorbikes also fell
into the water.
The sea beneath the bridge was less than two metres deep,
Wahyudi said, but many of the victims were crushed by debris.
All of the victims were locals, he said.
Indonesia's search and rescue agency stopped the search for
the day at 9 PM local time, but will resume at daybreak on
Monday, its spokesman said.
