Italy bridge disaster : Chances of finding survivors slim

Grief in Italy for the 39 victims of a collapsed motorway bridge in Genoa has been mixed with anger that such a vital structure could have simply given way.
Rescuers have little hope of finding more survivors underneath the Morandi Bridge, where almost 40 vehicles fell 45m (148ft) in Tuesday's collapse.
The cause is not yet known but there have been calls for the heads of the company operating the bridge to resign.
Survivors have also been recalling the horror of the bridge's collapse.
