Egypt: Building Collapses in Alexandria

| January 16, 2013 | 0 Comments

Eleven people were killed and nine were injured on Wednesday morning when an eight-story building collapsed in Alexandria.

Rescue efforts are ongoing as an official expects more bodies to be found under the rubble of the collapsed building of 24 flats.

According to the governor, the East Alexandria building that collapsed during the early hours of Wednesday was established without license.

Similar incidents are common in Egypt as many buildings tend to breach regulations, commit grave architectural errors and lack maintenance.

In October, four people were killed and others were injured when a building collapsed in West Alexandria while 19 people were killed in July when another building collapsed in the North Coast.
