MILAN (Reuters) - The Italian police said 38 people died this week in the port city of Genoa when a concrete bridge collapsed, revising an earlier count of 39 victims.

Italian rescuers have been working since Tuesday to search for survivors among towering slabs of concrete wreckage after a bridge on the A10 motorway linking Genoa to southern France gave way sending dozens of vehicles crashing onto a riverbed, a railway and two warehouses.
