ROME — Part of the wall of a house in the ancient city of Pompeii collapsed on Friday, raising fresh concerns about the state of one of the world's most treasured archaeological sites.
Officials said the wall was part of a 2,000-year-old house on the Vicolo del Modesto, in a section of the site that had already been declared off limits to the public for safety reasons.
About two square meters (yards) of the wall were involved in the collapse, which occurred after heavy rainstorms swept over most of southern Italy.
