Karachi building collapse kills 13

4:04 pm on 2 August 2009

At least 13 people, most of them women, are dead after a building collapsed in the southern Pakistani city of Karachi.

All floors of the five-storey building collapsed, trapping dozens of people in the debris.

A local government representative there could be more bodies trapped in the debris.

He said the building may have been damaged in last month's heavy monsoon rains, in which at least 26 people died and hundreds more were injured.
