Police worried about buildings collapsing from crowds

A police official was just on Channel 2, explaining that authorities are concerned that, due to the extremely heavy crowds expected to arrive for the funeral, some of the buildings in the neighborhood may collapse from the weight.

Hundreds of thousands of people are expected to arrive, he said, and many are already crowding the rooftops of old buildings in the area around Sanhedria.

Channel 2 is broadcasting a feed from the area outside the Porat Yosef yeshiva, which is absolutely packed with mourners, many of whom are pushing against the border policemen assigned to crowd control duty.
