The top three floors of a six-story shopping center built earlier this
year in a suburb of Ghana’s capital collapsed today Wednesday 7th
November 2012, killing at least one person and leaving several dozen
people trapped in the rubble, authorities and eyewitnesses said.
Public Affairs Officer of the Ghana Fire Service, Billy Anaglate,
confirmed the fatality at the Melcom Shopping Center at Achimota, a
suburb of Accra, though other officials told The Associated Press that the death toll was likely to rise.
