Building collapse in Qatar's capital kills 1, search ongoing
A building collapsed on Wednesday in Qatar's capital, killing at least one person as searchers clawed through the rubble to check for survivors, authorities said.
Qatar's Interior Ministry described the building as a four-story structure in Doha's Bin Durham neighbourhood.
It 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.
Qatar, a small nation that sticks out like a thumb into the Persian Gulf, hosted the FIFA World Cup last year.
