Building collapse in China’s Changsha kills 26

(Reuters) – Twenty six people died when a housing block collapsed in the Chinese city of Changsha last week, state broadcaster CCTV reported on Thursday after several days of rescue efforts.

Rescuers have pulled ten people from the rubble of the eight-storey “self-built” house in Hunan province which collapsed on April 29, according to CCTV.

The cause of the collapse is under investigation by local authorities and several people have been arrested, according to the report.
