India building collapse kills 5: illegal construction blamed

The building caved in at Vishnu Garden in west Delhi Saturday night,killing at least five people. Rescuers are still searching for possible survivors in the debris.

Police suspect the building, located in a narrow lane, was illegally built, but other reports said a nearby construction site was the cause of the collapse.
