Sharjah24 – AFP: The roof of a tea storage facility collapsed Wednesday in the Sri Lankan capital Colombo, killing seven workers and wounding two others, police said.
Military personnel were rushed to the private company in the commercial quarter of Grandpass to search for those crushed inside.

Police said the cause of the accident was still unclear but investigations were underway into whether unauthorised extensions had been made to the single-storey building.
