Report: 3 bodies found in Italy building collapse


ANSA said the bodies are those of an Italian-Dutch couple and their child who had been staying in a residential building in the historic center of the town of Conversano that collapsed Thursday morning following an explosion caused by a gas leak.

At least 10 people in surrounding buildings were slightly injured, including one child.

Conversano Mayor Giuseppe Lovascio told Sky 24 Italian television earlier that an Italian-Dutch family had arrived from the Netherlands two days ago for vacation.

Conversano is located south of the city of Bari in the Apulia region, which forms the heel of the Italian boot.
