BHIWANDI, Sept 21: Ten people were killed and up to 25 are feared trapped after a three-storey residential building collapsed before dawn on Monday in western India, officials said.

Emergency workers from the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) pulled 19 people from the rubble -- including two boys aged four and seven -- to loud cheers from residents.
"Total number of deaths is 10... Rescue operations are ongoing", NDRF commandant Ithape Pandit told AFP.   -AFP
