Another collapse at Pompeii
Published on December 5th, 2012 | by Sevaan Franks1
Officials said the wall was part of a 2,000-year-old house on the Vicolo del Modesto, in a section of the site that had already been declared off limits to the public for safety reasons.
About two square metres (yards) of the wall were involved in the collapse, which occurred after heavy rain storms in most of southern Italy.
The street where the collapse took place is located in an area of the dig that came to light in excavations in the 19th century.[Full story] Story: Philip Pullella, Reuters | Photo: Ciro De Luca, Reuters
