Spain house collapse 'kills four'
At least four people were killed when a building housing immigrants in Spain collapsed, reports say.

Four people were injured in the collapse and rescue workers are looking for survivors in the rubble, according to the state news agency Efe.

The building collapsed in the early hours of Saturday in the town of Piera, some 50km northwest of Barcelona.

Several immigrants from north Africa were housed in the building. The cause of the collapse is being investigated.

Neighbours are quoted as saying the building's residents had been organising gatherings every evening to mark the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
