8 people were killed after a bridge collapsed near Bali


At least eight people were killed and 30 injured on Sunday after a bridge collapsed near Indonesia's resort island of Bali, officials said.

The bridge linked the smaller islands of Lembongan and Ceningan. It was crowded with people returning from morning prayers at a nearby temple.

Three of the victims were children aged 3 to 9.

Officials said the water under the bridge was less than two meters (about 6.5 feet) deep, but many were crushed by the bridge's debris, Sky News reports.

Initial reports showed the vitims were all Indonesian.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
