23 missing in Kashmir bridge collapse

A newly constructed bridge collapsed Sunday morning in Indian Kashmir, sending at least two dozen people into the river.

CNN reports that at least 23 workers were feared dead while Yahoo News reports that five people were killed and 18 are missing.

Two people were found in the river, which is swollen from recent rain and snowfall.

Most of the dead and missing were workers involved in construction or local bridge users.

Yahoo News reports that the bridge was to open later this month and that construction related accidents are common in India.
