At least 11 killed in Mumbai

At least 11 people, including eight children, were killed yesterday when heavy monsoon rains caused a residential building to collapse in a Mumbai slum, Indian authorities said.

Mumbai city authorities confirmed that seven other residents were injured in the incident late Wednesday even as search and rescue operations continued for several others feared missing. One source said at least 3 people are still missing.

Residents have been evacuated from nearby structures considered to be in a dangerous condition.

Of the injured, six were in stable condition, with one 30-year-old woman admitted to hospital in critical condition.

Collapses of poorly constructed buildings are common during the monsoon, which officially hit India's financial capital on Wednesday bringing widespread flooding and traffic chaos.
