Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi offered condolences to the Italian people and government over the collapse of a giant motorway bridge in Genoa that killed dozens of people. In a statement released late on Tuesday, Qassemi expressed sorrow over the tragic accident and sympathized with the bereaved families, Tasnim News Agency reported. A section of a towering highway bridge collapsed  Tuesday, sending vehicles plunging nearly 300 feet to the ground and killing at least 39 people, officials said. The collapse of the Morandi Bridge in Genoa occurred around midday during strong storms moving through the area of northwest Italy, according to authorities. Construction involving a crane was underway on the bridge at the time of the collapse, but it was too early to pinpoint what caused the span to fail, Italian authorities said, according to ABC News.
