      The Seoul Metropolitan Government has installed emergency telephones and CCTV cameras on Han River Bridge as part of a project to prevent people from jumping to their death.

      The project will extend to all eight bridges that span the Han River by next year.

      The first was Mapo Bridge, which has the highest number of suicide attempts.
