Egyptian local authorities said five people died and more than 20 were wounded Saturday as a building collapsed in the Egyptian capital Cairo.
The Cairo governorate said in a statement:
“The governorate’s crisis room was informed at 3:00 am (0100 GMT) of the collapse of a building consisting of a basement, a ground floor, and nine (upper) floors,”
“Khaled Abdel Aal, the governor, immediately went to the site of the incident accompanied by civil protection forces.”
The statement said that five people were confirmed dead and 24 wounded in the collapse in the Gesr Suez district near Heliopolis in the east of the city.
However, the governor ordered the “establishment of an engineering committee” to inspect surrounding buildings and evaluate the impact.
