ITALIAN REGIONAL investigators were this week examining the rubble of a five storey building that collapsed suddenly in Foggia on Italy's south Adriatic coast.
The building 'imploded' without warning last Thurday night leaving at least 62 residents dead.
A spokesman for the local authority said the cause had not yet been identified, although local press reports say residents were concerned over damage to a concrete pillar and planned to hold a meeting with the building owner to discuss the problem.
The disaster has caused a national uproar. The building was one of tens of thousands of vulnerable post-war structures in the country. Poor build standards and sometimes corrupt inspections during construction have led to fears that many others could also be at risk.
