Three Gorges bridge demolished


Chinese authorities have carried out a bridge demolition in Yunyang County, Chongqing.

The 32-year-old crossing was blown up as part of a project to clear obstacles in the Three Gorges reservoir and raise water levels.

It will be replaced by a new bridge that is expected to be completed in June 2009.
