A residential block of flats have collapsed in Alexandria killing at least 14 people. It is believed that 30 people lived in the block and rescue workers seen here using specialist diggers, also used their bare hands to search through the rubble for the missing residents.

This man believed to have lost  loved ones in the collapse is shouting for help and has to be restrained as he looks to blame the authorities for the  deaths.

The army have been drafted in to control the hundreds of people who have gathered at the site. No doubt angry, as Egypt has a reputation, for poor building standards and maintenance, and collapses in the country particularly in the working class areas are fairly common.
