Egypt to probe Alexandria building collpase

Questions are being asked over building regulations after at least 19 killed in building collapse.

    Rescue efforts are under way in Egyptian city of Alexandria after an apartment building collapsed.

    Military rescue teams have already pulled out at least 19 bodies from the rubble – and they are looking for others.

    But the incident highlights allegations of widespread corruption between officials and landlords when it comes to regulating the housing sector in heavily populated areas.
