At least 18 people have died and 50 have been injured in a stampede in Mumbai after thousands gathered to mourn the death of the 102-year-old leader of a Muslim sect, a city official and television reports said.
The stampede took place outside the home of Syedna Mohamed Burhanuddin, the spiritual leader of the Dawoodi Bohra Muslim community, in a wealthy part of the city.
A large crowd of mourners was pressed against the gates of the house at the time, television channel CNN-IBN said, citing police.
A building has collapsed as it was being built illegally in India, killing at least 27 people, police have said.
The collapse injured 54 others and rescuers are searching for more casualties in the debris, explained police inspector Digamber Jangale.
The building in the Mumbai suburb of Thane did not have clearances from local authorities to be built, he said. The first four floors had offices, but most of those inside had left for the day at the time of the collapse.
Workers were adding four more floors and had finished three before the building fell. Most of the dead were construction workers who were staying in the building, the police officer said. The condition of at least 10 of the injured was serious.
Police said it was not immediately clear what caused the structure to collapse.They have arrested the builder and his associate.
Business leaders have said the government could be doing more to encourage Indian trade with the UK.
Despite a lack of history, many European countries enjoy better trade with the fast-growing economy, and there are concerns that recent visa restrictions for students might be preventing better ties from being formed in the future.
