Bulgaria to renovate bridges after Italy disaster

Bulgaria has decided to renovate more than 200 bridges in the wake of the deadly collapse of a bridge in the Italian city of Genoa, according to government information published yesterday.

A total of 211 bridges -- most of which were built between 35 and 40 years ago -- are in a bad state, the regional development minister told a government meeting, according to minutes published yesterday.

Prime Minister Boyko Borisov said all must be renovated and strengthened.
