The historical Bridge of Hoshteva in Zagoria village of Gjirokastra collapsed on Sunday due to the heavy rain.
The cultural monument, for which the Minister of Culture promised the restoration within this year, was totally destroyed.
Kumbaro earlier said that the rare cultural monument will be restored and it does not show any risk for collapse.
"During the last inspections made last December after the floods, the bridge resisted and it is not in danger," secured Kumbaro.
But the worse happened. Bridge collapsed without waiting for the minister to intervene and save the Monument of Culture.
