Four dead and many still trapped following a building collapse in Spain

# Four people have died and about 20 injured after the roof of a two-storey building collapsed on the popular Spanish island of Majorca. Several people are believed to still be trapped. According to the BBC, local police told reporters that the balcony may have collapsed due to excess weight being placed on it, but emphasised that the exact cause was still being investigated. Spain’s prime minister, Pedro Sánchez, said he was monitoring the situation closely and his government would send all the required assistance.
