Collapse at Cambodia shoe factory
Part of a shoe factory has collapsed in Cambodia, leaving at least two people dead, officials say.
The concrete roof at the factory in Kampong Speu province, west of Phnom Penh, crashed on to employees as they were working, a police spokesman said.
Japanese sportswear firm Asics has confirmed its footwear was made there, saying: "We understand that some people have died, so first we offer our condolences.''
"We want the highest priority to be placed on saving lives", they added.
