Bridge col­lapse near Bali kills eight

The Myanmar Times - - World -

A bridge con­nect­ing two small is­lands close to Bali col­lapsed on Oc­to­ber 16, send­ing mo­tor­bikes fly­ing into the wa­ter and leav­ing eight dead and about 30 in­jured. The sus­pen­sion bridge linked Nusa Lem­bon­gan and Nusa Ceningan, two small is­lands pop­u­lar with tourists south­east of In­done­sian hol­i­day hotspot Bali. The nar­row bridge can only be crossed by mo­tor­bikes and pedes­tri­ans and was par­tic­u­larly busy at the time of the ac­ci­dent be­cause peo­ple had been tak­ing part in a Hindu cer­e­mony at a nearby tem­ple.
