At least 10 people have been killed and many remain trapped after a four‑storey building collapsed in the Indian city of Mumbai.
The cause of the collapse is not clear.
Reports say the building was up to 100 years old. Recent monsoon flooding may also have been a factor.
BBC reports that it's estimated disasters such as this kill about 2,000 people a year in India. Poor construction standards are often blamed.
Ten people have been declared dead, including three children. Eight others have been admitted to hospital.
Collapse of a building in Mumbai’s Dongri is anguishing. My condolences to the families of those who lost their lives. I hope the injured recover soon.
