Pompeii walls collapsed

Pompeii News Updates! Pompeii officials say two more walls have given way inside the 2,000-year-old archaeological site, the second collapse in as many days.

The superintendency said the collapses concern the upper parts of a wall in an ancient house and a partition wall between two buildings. Both walls were ancient, but featured no frescoes, according to the officials.
