Collapse at Cambodia shoe factory

Part of a shoe factory has collapsed in Cambodia, leaving at least two people dead, officials say.

The concrete roof at the factory in Kampong Speu province, west of Phnom Penh, crashed on to employees as they were working, a police spokesman said.

Teams were working to rescue people from the rubble. At least six people were injured, police said.

The garment industry is Cambodia's biggest employer and export earner.
