7 missing after Japan tunnel collapse starts fire

Published: 12.02.12, 08:46 / Israel News

A tunnel on a heavily travelled highway in central Japan collapsed on Sunday, sending debris crashing down on cars, triggering a fire and leaving seven people missing, officials and media reported.

 

Network television footage showed black smoke billowing from the 4.7 km (2.8-mile) tunnel in Yamanashi prefecture, about 80 km (50 miles) west of Tokyo on the main road connecting the capital to western Japan. (Reuters)
