Rescue workers in South Africa are searching for any survivors in the rubble of a shopping mall under construction that partially collapsed, killing one person and injuring 29.

Police were trying to find several workers who were reported missing following the collapse on Tuesday in Tongaat, near the eastern coastal city of Durban.

They earlier said two people were killed but later revised that to one.

Reports said the building work should not have been taking place because of problems over safety regulations.
