Highway bridge collapses in Rodopi; no injuries reported

A bridge spanning the Kompsatos River in Rodopi on the national highway linking Komotini and Xanthi in northern Greece collapsed in the early hours of Sunday under unknown circumstances. No injuries have been reported.

The Rodopi News website, meanwhile, reported that this stretch of road is relatively new and there have been no major storms recently to flood the river and possibly explain the damage. It added that a much older bridge spanning the river is still intact.
