Alexandria: Deaths in Egypt building collapse
At least fifteen people have been killed after an eight-storey residential building collapsed in the Egyptian city of Alexandria.
The official number of confirmed dead is likely to rise as bodies are identified.
Apartment blocks frequently collapse in Egypt. Illegal building, poor maintenance and corruption are just some of the reasons inspectors have given.
Aleem Maqbool reports from the site in Alexandria.
