Israel: Rescue Bid In Tel Aviv After Car Park Collapses


A rescue operation is under way in the Israeli city of Tel Aviv after a car park under construction collapsed, with fears people are trapped inside.

Eighteen people have been treated for injuries. At least three people are believed to be missing.

Reports say an initial collapse caused a crane to fall, bringing down the rest of the multi-storey building.

The incident happened in Ramat Hahayil, a commercial area in the city’s north, home to many high-tech businesses.

Pictures from the scene show clouds of dust rising from a huge crater, with large amounts of debris at the bottom.

Dozens of firefighters, rescue and security services went to the site to search for people believed to be trapped under the rubble.
