Building collapse in Cambodia kills at least 10 and injures 23

An unknown number of workers are still trapped in rubble in the latest construction disaster to hit the country.

At least 10 people have been killed and 23 injured after a building in Cambodia collapsed, trapping workers under rubble, officials said on Saturday.

The seven-storey concrete building collapsed on Friday in the coastal town of Kep, about 160 km (100 miles) south-west of the capital Phnom Penh.

It came six months after another construction site collapsed, killing 28 people in Preah Sihanouk province.
