CAIRO: A listed building in the center of Egypt’s capital partially collapsed injuring five people Saturday, in the latest such incident, a security source said.
Authorities who rushed to the building on Kasr Al-Nile street, near the iconic Tahrir Square, tended to 14 people including passersby and transported five to hospitals, the source said.
An investigation has been launched to assess the cause of the sudden collapse of the heritage-listed building, Cairo’s governorate said on its Facebook page.
