A four-story building under construction in a northern Indian city collapsed Wednesday, killing 10 workers and injuring at least 25, police said.

Soldiers helped remove concrete slabs and pulled out another 10 workers who were trapped under the debris of the building in Allahabad, in Uttar Pradesh state.

“The building, which was under construction, collapsed while the workers were laying the roof. At least 10 workers were killed, many of them instantly,” said Manoj Singh, a senior police official.

The building was the extension of a shopping mall. City officials planned an investigation, Singh said.
