Police in Indian-controlled Kashmir say a bridge has collapsed over an
icy Himalayan river, killing at least four people and leaving 19 others
The bridge, which was under construction, collapsed early on Sunday outside the town of Uri, about 100 kilometers west of
Kashmir's main city Srinagar.
The bridge spans a river flowing from
India into neighboring Pakistan,
and is near the de facto border separating the two countries. Rescuers
are searching for survivors and the bodies of the dead. Officials say
most of the victims were bridge workers.
The cause of the collapse was not immediately known.
