Pompeii building collapsed

The House of the Gladiators in Pompeii collapsed on Saturday morning, said the Guardian (UK).

The collapse came as a shock to some, but it was a long time coming for others. Some blame recent rain for the collapse while others blame mismanagement by the government for the historic site's collapse.

There is a call from the private sector for privatization of Pompeii.

Italy's Culture Minister, Sandro Bondi, has urged the government to give Pompeii more funds as this collapse could be just the first of many according to the AP.
