10 Killed In Egyptian Building Collapse


Egypt's Health Ministry says 10 people were killed when an apartment tower under construction collapsed on adjacent buildings in the Mediterranean city of Alexandria on July 14.

The ministry said on July 15 that five other people were injured and that search teams are continuing to look for survivors buried under rubble.

The 11-storey building in the poor Alexandria neighborhood of al-Gomrouk collapsed onto three adjacent buildings, reducing much of the structures to rubble.

All the dead and wounded lived in the three smaller buildings.
