Baku, April 1, AZERTAC

Police on Friday opened a case of culpable homicide against the company building a flyover that collapsed in Kolkata, killing at least 23 people and injuring dozens more, according to Reuters.

Rescuers worked all night with cranes and jackhammers to clear concrete slabs and steel girders from the 100-metre (110-yard) length of the flyover that broke off suddenly and crashed down on pedestrians and vehicles on the road below.

Ninety were rescued, many with serious trauma injuries, but chances of finding survivors in the wreckage had dwindled nearly a full day after Thursday's disaster in a teeming commercial district near the city's Girish Park.
