The collapse of a supermarket in the Latvian capital Riga has been described as "murder", by the country's president.

Andris Berzins said many defenceless people had been killed and that should be the basis for an investigation into the disaster.

The current death toll is 52 but some 10 families have told police they have missing relatives.

Damien McGuinness reports.
