Florida: Pedestrian bridge collapse kills at least 4

Rescue efforts are ongoing searching for any signs of life beneath the rubble.

    A pedestrian bridge has collapsed on to a busy highway in the US state of Florida, killing at least four people.

    Vehicles are trapped under the wreckage at Florida International University.

    The pedestrian bridge had only been erected at the university on Saturday. It was due to be formally opened next year.
