11 missing after high-rise building collapses in Colombia
MEDELLIN, Colombia (AP) - Officials in Medellin, Colombia, say they are trying to rescue 11 people missing in the collapse of a high-rise building.
Medellin disaster preparedness chief Jaime Enrique Gomez says he still holds out hope of finding all alive following the collapse on Saturday night.
He says some 150 people were worked on Sunday in rescue efforts in one of the most exclusive neighbourhoods of Medellin, Colombia's second-largest city.
Mr Gomez says officials detected a risk in the 22-story apartment building on Friday and recommended it be evacuated, preventing a greater disaster.
