Build­ing fall kills 10

AROUND THE WORLD

Wales On Sunday - - NEWS -

TEN peo­ple are re­ported to have been killed in north­ern Iran af­ter a build­ing col­lapsed when a wa­ter heater ex­ploded.

Five peo­ple were in­jured and taken to hos­pi­tal af­ter the in­ci­dent in Mash­had, said Ira­nian me­dia.

Many Ira­ni­ans use gas-pow­ered stor­age wa­ter heaters and sim­i­lar cases in the past have been blamed on gas leak­ages from the heaters and a dis­re­gard for safety mea­sures.

The YJC.ir news web­site said six of the vic­tims died im­me­di­ately fol­low­ing the col­lapse of the two-storey build­ing and four died later in hos­pi­tal.
