Building collapse kills Two in Mogadishu

A woman and a baby died when a three-storey old building collapsed in Mogadishu on Monday night, local authorities and residents said.

Rescue work was ongoing at the site in the coastal capital throughout last night as local police said they feared people still lay trapped under the rubble.

Local residents reports said the victims were members of locally displaced persons (IDPs) who are sheltering near the collapsed building which was an old printing house in Shangani district.
