A multi-storey building has collapsed in Istanbul in northwestern Turkey. It is unclear how many people have been killed or are missing. Reports suggest warning was given and emergency teams were able to evacuate some people. However, others were still inside when the building came down and remain trapped in the rubble.

According to some reports, excavation works in the building next door may have caused the accident as cracks were heard before the building collapsed.
