State funeral for Genoa bridge collapse victims begins

Genoa (Italy) (AFP) – A state funeral was underway in Italy Saturday for those killed by the devastating collapse of a motorway bridge in Genoa, as rescuers discovered more victims.

The service has been shunned by more than half of the families who lost loved ones after the Morandi bridge crumbled without warning on Tuesday.

The death toll of 38 looked set to rise after the fire service announced early on Saturday that they had found human remains in a crushed car.
