• 6 dead after India liquor shop collapses


    CHANDIGARH, India: A two-story liquor store collapsed Monday killing six laborers in northern India, police said, the latest deadly accident to highlight shoddy construction standards in the country. The building in Chandigarh city crumbled as construction workers in an adjoining plot were digging a basement, triggering the wall of the liquor store to cave in. The accident is the latest in a long line of deadly building collapses in India, some of which have highlighted shoddy construction standards. In July, seven people died when a three-story building collapsed in heavy rains in Mumbai just a year after an 11-story apartment tower in Tamil Nadu came crashing down killing 61 people, mostly laborers.
