Karachi: A rescue official says four more
bodies have been pulled from the rubble of a collapsed
building in the southern Pakistani city of Karachi, raising

Chief Fire Officer Ehtisham Uddin said today that 20
women were among those killed when the five-story building
collapsed Thursday in the city`s Musa Lane residential area.
