Tanzania building collapse traps dozens

At least three people have been killed and dozens are missing after a multi-storey building collapsed in the Tanzanian commercial capital, Dar es Salaam.

Among those missing are school children who were playing near the building when it fell.

People trapped under the rubble were said to have been making phone calls to friends and relatives, as bulldozers and a crane were used to move the debris.

Hassan Mhelela reports from Dar es Salaam.
