A building collapses in Syria’s war-damaged second-largest city of Aleppo, killing 16 people including children, authorities and media report.

“The number of victims of the residential building collapse… has risen to 16 dead,” says state news agency SANA.

Only one person has been rescued alive from the rubble of the five-story building, which was home to seven families, Syria’s interior ministry says.

A Kurdish news agency says five children are among the dead. The victims include Syrians who had been displaced during the country’s years of fighting, a war monitor says. Locals tells AFP that about 35 people lived in the building.
