Fatal building collapse

6:02 am on 7 February 2012

A factory has collapsed in the eastern Pakistani city of Lahore with many people, including women and children, feared trapped.

Officials say a blast that caused the three-storey premises to collapse could have been caused by a gas explosion.

Reports say four bodies have been recovered. At least eight people have been rescued.

Estimates of the number of those trapped range from 15 to about 60.
