Italian President Sergio Mattarella is due to preside over a state funeral for 18 of the victims of Tuesday's bridge collapse in Genoa.

Mr Mattarella and Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte will lead mourners at the ceremony at a hall in the city.

So far 38 people are confirmed to have died in the disaster and five are still unaccounted for.

Some families are reportedly staying away from Saturday's ceremony because of anger at the government.
