Dozens feared trapped in Rwanda building collapse

About 100 people are feared trapped in a collapsed four-storey building in north-eastern Rwanda, the government says.

"The tentative information we have indicates that debris fell on about 100 people," Rwandan minister Seraphine Mukantabana told AFP.

Rwandan police say three people have been confirmed dead and 21 people have been taken to hospital.

Construction workers are believed to be among those trapped in the building.
