Building collapse kills 17 in central China

SHANGHAI – The collapse of a residential building under renovation in central China has killed 17 construction workers and injured another 23, state media reported on Saturday.

The 90s-era building in Henan province collapsed suddenly on Friday afternoon in a project which involved adding more levels to the two-storey building, state media said.

The local government in Wuyang County – where the accident occurred – had called off the search by Saturday, the official Xinhua news agency said, adding that nine of the injured were in serious condition.
