One mason has been rescued while several others who could not manage to escape are still trapped inside.
“I heard a scream followed by a heavy thud. In a moment the whole area was enveloped by heavy dust then it went silent. It’s so unfortunate we have lost young men who were trying to earn the daily bread,” a witness said.
