At least 25 people are missing after a bridge across the Jhelum River in Indian-administered Kashmir collapsed.

A police official said rescue teams searching the river banks have so far recovered three bodies.

Eyewitnesses say a vehicle carrying labourers fell into the river when the bridge collapsed. All of the passengers are feared dead.
