Pozzuoli, July 30 - Mourners filled a stadium in
the small southern town of Pozzuoli Tuesday at funeral services
for the 38 victims killed in a bus accident Sunday.
"This is a tragedy that's cut my heart in two," said the
mayor, Vincenzo Figliolia.
"We must make sure their deaths are not in vane. Something
didn't work, someone is responsible. We must find clarity and
I'm sure we will".
Police suspect the bus, which slammed into a guardrail
before flying off a high viaduct when the protective barrier
gave way, suffered from some kind of mechanical failure.
Before crashing into the railing, the bus struck six cars
travelling on the highway.
The bus had been carrying a group of friends returning from
a weekend excursion to the local Telese thermal baths and the
popular pilgrimage destination of Pietralcina.
Tuesday was declared a national day of mourning by Premier
Enrico Letta, who attended services but made no comment.
