At least 11 people have died in Senegal after the terrace where they were watching a World Cup football match collapsed, police say.

A large group of people had gathered at the home of the local head of the national electricity company to see the game on TV, Senegalese radio said.

The collapse happened as the fans watched the Uruguay-South Korea match on Saturday in Matam, northern Senegal.

Police said on Sunday some people may still be trapped in the rubble.
