3 dead in Egypt factory collapse

At least three people died in a factory collapse in the Mediterranean city of Alexandria, officials said.

Five people were also seriously injured in the collapse of the textile factory in Alexandria, a security official said blaming the accident 'on bad weather and heavy rains.' 'It has been raining steadily and very hard since Saturday in Alexandria. The building is 30 years old and the foundations could have been damaged,' one security official said.

Relief workers rushed to the scene to assist more factory workers, officials said, adding that 30 people could have been working in the six-storey factory in the northern Alexandria neighbourhood of Moharram Bey.
