Wall collapses on huts in India, killing at least 16 workers
A 60ft-high wall has collapsed on a cluster of huts in western India, killing at least 16 workers living there, a fire official said.
Fire official J Gaekwad said the boundary wall of a multi-story residential apartment building collapsed in Pune early on Saturday as monsoon rains lashed western Maharashtra state.
A rescue operation is continuing as some more people are feared to be trapped under the debris.
Building collapses are common in India during the June-September monsoon season, when heavy rains weaken the foundations of structures that are poorly constructed.
