Building collapse kills three in Egypt

Three residents were killed and five others were wounded by an old building collapsed in Egypt.

Residents of the four-story building in Boulaq Abouel Ela, a low-income neighborhood in the Egyptian capital, had been ordered to evacuate the building before its collapse, said the police official, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk to the press.

But rental rates and living expenses usually make it difficult for middle and lower class individuals to find alternative housing.

Rescue workers recovered bodies from under the rubble, and the injured were transferred to a nearby hospital, the official said.

Buildings collapse regularly in Egypt, either as a result of age and deterioration or shoddy construction that does not meet regulations.
