Saboteurs Damage Soon-to-Open Bridge

From Times Wire Reports

Saboteurs damaged the showpiece Tsing Ma bridge, the world's longest road-rail suspension link, barely a week before former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher is set to declare it open, police said. A police spokesman said cables along the emergency tunnel under the two-tier bridge had been deliberately cut in 32 places. He said the damage was reported Friday and that police had received no reports of injuries. Thatcher is due to cut the ribbon Sunday and declare the bridge to Hong Kong's new airport open.
