Karachi, Pak­istan - Five per­sons died when an apart­ment build­ing col­lapsed in south­ern Pak­istan early on Tues­day as most of its res­i­dents were sleep­ing, of­fi­cials said.

Res­cuers strug­gled to pull sur­vivors from the rub­ble of the three-storey build­ing in Karachi. “Five bod­ies were re­cov­ered from the rub­ble,” the city’s deputy com­mis­sioner, Fa­reed Ud­din, said.

An­other lo­cal of­fi­cial said a woman and a

13 year old boy were among the dead. Res­cuers pulled at least nine in­jured per­sons from the de­bris.
