Italy: Bridge blas ting in Genoa

Italy is marking one year since the collapse of the Morandi Bridge in Genoa, which killed 43 people and left some 600 homeless. The cause of the disaster has still not been determined. Last June, the ruins of the bridge were demolished to make way for a new structure, but for those affected by the tragedy, the future remains uncertain.
