Divers suspend Minneapolis search

‘Divers in the US city of Minneapolis have suspended their search overnight for victims of a bridge that collapsed over the Mississippi river.

Officials said it was too dangerous for the divers to work in the dark.

Four people are confirmed dead with up to 30 people missing. US officials are not linking the collapse to terrorism.

Some 50 vehicles were hurled into the water when part of the I-35W bridge in Minneapolis, Minnesota, gave way during the rush hour on Wednesday evening.’
