4 Dead in Collapse of Bridge on a Bus in Brazil

A bridge built for soccer's World Cup competition in the Brazilian city of Belo Horizonte collapsed on a bus full of people, Thursday, killing four and injuring 20. Belo Horizonte is scheduled to host one of Tuesday's two semifinal games.

The tragedy illustrates the claims by critics about substandard construction caused by unsuccessful attempts to complete the infrastructure needed for the competition after it got off to a late start.
