Interior Minister alleges 10-15 people to be under rubbles after Batumi building collapse

Rescuers in Batumi keep searching for survivors of a residential building collapse, Interior Minister Vakhtan Gomelauri told reporters after arriving on the spot.

“Roughly, 10-15 people are under the rubbles; two of them phoned us. The situation is tough. The Ministry of Internal Affairs launched a probe into the accident,” the Minister asserted.

Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili has arrived in Batumi recently.

Part of a five-storey residential building on May 26 Street in Batumi collapsed earlier today. Neighbours say the building had a two-storey extension on top.
