3 dead when building collapses in Sayeda Zeinab

AP reports that three people died when a thrre-storey building in the Sayeda Zeinab quarter in Cairo collapsed this evening according to a police source. Two of the people killed were believed to have been working in the house, the third was living there. A man is suspected to be among the debris.

This is unfortunately a reocuring theme in Egypt. In August 2006, eight people lost their life in two different accidents on the same day , and the highest death toll in recent years came when a apartment building collapsed in the middle class neighbourhood Medinat Nasr in January 2004 and claimed 16 lives.
