  1. Building collapse in Delhi kills 7

    India: At least seven people were killed in a building collapse on Tuesday night in the old centre of New Delhi.

    Locals feared more may still be trapped in the rubble.

    The three-storey building came down when most people were eating dinner or getting read for bed in Old Delhi, an historic but very crowded and dilapidated area.

    Poor-quality construction material and inadequate foundations are often blamed for collapses in India. A building collapse in November killed 70 people in the capital, where land prices and rents have soared thanks to a population quickly increasing with migrants seeking work.
