Collapsed Building Leave Four Dead In Cairo


Reports By African News, A building collapse on Wednesday killing four Egyptians from the same family in a Cairo neighborhood where a similar tragedy occurred earlier this summer. Five people were also injured when the four-storey building fell in a street in the working-class Hadayek Al-Qobba district, says report.

On 17 July, 13 people, including at least seven who were from the same family, died under similar circumstances in the same neighborhood. Several structures have collapsed in recent years in Egypt, leaving numerous victims, because of their dilapidated condition as well as lack of respect for planning laws.

While these accidents also occur outside Cairo, the situation is particularly grave in the sprawling capital, Africa’s second most populated city with more than 20 million inhabitants.
