Wall at Pompeii collapses after heavy rain

A Roman wall at Pompeii in southern Italy has collapsed, local archaeologists say, in the latest in a series of accidents at the ancient city buried by a volcanic explosion 2 000 years ago.

 

The section of wall some two metres (seven feet)long was part of the ruins of a house at the sprawling site near Naples. The area has seen heavy rain in recent weeks, and previous collapses have been linked to bad weather.

 

The local archaeological authority said in a statement that the announcement of a tender for the long-delayed conservation project was "imminent".
