Ten people in serious or critical condition following bleacher collapse

Magen David Adom medics say that 10 people are in serious or critical condition following the bleacher collapse in the settlement of Givat Ze’ev just north of Jerusalem, with another 50 having non-life threatening injuries.

There are not known to be people trapped beneath the bleacher.

Police say in a statement that people are being evacuated from the area and an investigation has been opened into the collapse.

A picture sent out by police shows metal beams and wood planks from the collapsed seating structure.
