27 people killed in India building collapse

At least 27 people have died and dozens have been injured after a building still under construction collapsed in western India, police said Friday.

The building, in Thane, about 10 kilometers northeast of central Mumbai, caved in on Thursday evening, injuring 59 people, said Digambar Jangale, a local police official.

Rescuers are still searching through the wreckage, he said, and five children are among those pulled alive from the rubble so far Friday.
