Ethiopia state media have reported that a three-storeyed building in Addis Abeba Bole Subcity, specifically near Summit, has collapsed earlier today.
With the first-storey completed, the second and the third stories of the building were under construction.
Three persons,a security guard and the guard’s two minor children, who were not injured in the collapse, have been rescued, the report added.
The reason behind the collapse is not yet known. Ten months ago, another building had collapsed in the same area.
Local media have also reported that several houses were destroyed or flooded due to an overnight rain last night.
