BANDUNG (Indonesia)

Apr 17, 2018-

A group of teenagers practising for a dance and music show were among seven Indonesians killed Monday when the building they were in collapsed, police said. The accident happened in Cirebon, about 220 kilometres (135 miles) east of Jakarta. A tall warehouse next door collapsed and then crushed the local art centre where the junior high school students were preparing for a show, according to police. “A nine-metre tall building...suddenly collapsed onto the art centre right next to it,” local police chief Trunoyudo Wisnu Andiko told AFP. “The art centre also collapsed immediately and buried some children.” Authorities initially said just one part of the warehouse had fallen onto the art centre. Seven were killed as the art centre caved in, including six boys between 13 and 15 years-old and the centre’s 48-year-old manager, police said.
