11 dead after India building collapse

AFP, New Delhi

Eleven people were confirmed dead yesterday, three days after a building under construction in southern India caved in, officials said. Building collapses are frequent in India. Many firms use cheap materials and bribe officials to evade regulations, while on-site safety is lax. Around 400 rescuers have been scouring through tonnes concrete and steel after the latest tragedy in Karnataka state on Tuesday. Fifty-three people have been rescued from the rubble of the five-storey building in Dharwad district, but three more bodies were pulled out on Thursday. “At least 15 people are possibly still under the debris and it’s unlikely they will survive,” emergency official Srikant, who goes by one name, told AFP. The victims were mostly from northern Indian states who came to the region for work.
