Ten dead, dozens saved after 10-storey building collapses in Iran

Ten people have been killed and dozens injured after an unfinished building collapsed in south-west Iran, SIA reports quoting the Iranian Red Crescent.

Rescue teams worked through the night to pull out the dozens still trapped in the 10-storey Metropol office block in Abadan, state media reported.

Pictures showed that concrete floors and steel beams had fallen on to the street below, crushing several cars.

Officials said the cause of the collapse was being investigated.

Those who were trapped in the building for hours have since been rescued and taken to hospital, a regional governor told Iranian state news agency Irna.

Local prosecutor Hamid Maranipour said both the Metropol's owner and the building contractor had been arrested.
