Italy crash: Mass funeral held at sports hall

A mass funeral has been held near the southern Italian town of Pozzuoli for the 38 victims of Sunday's bus crash.

Prime Minister Enrico Letta was among the dignitaries assembled for the event, taking place in a sports hall.

The coach drove off a viaduct and into a ravine near Monteforte Irpino in the worst accident of its kind in Western Europe for a decade.

A choir sang solemnly as the bishop of Pozzuoli walked towards the altar during the service.
