A bridge on a main highway linking Italy with France collapsed Tuesday in the Italian port city of Genoa during a sudden, violent storm, sending vehicles plunging 45 meters into a heap of rubble. Italian officials said at least 20 people were killed, although some people were found alive in the debris. A car plowed into pedestrians and cyclists near the Houses of Parliament in London during the morning rush hour Tuesday, injuring three people in what police suspect is the latest in a string of attacks in the British capital that used vehicles as weapons. Afghan officials say they've sent special forces backed by U.S. advisers and air strikes to the city of Ghazni, where clashes with Taliban fighters have left hundreds of people dead over days of fighting. North Korea has repeated a call for a declaration formally ending the Korean War as a way to foster mutual trust. Pyongyang called this a requirement it said was necessary for progress on denuclearization. Monday's commentary followed the agreement between the Koreas for their leaders to meet for a third time this year.
