(NewsRadio); A Sri Lankan had died in Qatar following the collapse of a four-storey building in Doha’s Bin Durham neighbourhood.
He has been identified as a 56-year-old man while another Sri Lankan is reported missing in the incident.
A building collapsed on Wednesday in Qatar’s capital, killing at least one person as searchers clawed through the rubble to check for survivors.
Qatar’s Interior Ministry said rescuers found seven survivors, while the one person killed had been inside the building at the time of the collapse.
Authorities offered no immediate explanation for the building’s collapse. Online video showed car alarms sounding after the collapse, with one part of the building falling into another nearby.
Civil defence and police surrounded the site after the 8am collapse, with multiple ambulances and excavators at the scene. Residents were asked to evacuate for their safety.
