Indian police say a multi-story building has collapsed in Mumbai, killing at least 29 people and injuring scores of others.

Rescue workers continue to search for more people that may be trapped in the debris.

The collapse occurred Thursday evening at a seven-story building, still under construction, in the Mumbai suburb of Thane.

Most of the dead were construction workers and their families staying in the unfinished parts of the building. At least nine children are among the dead.

The Thane police commissioner says the building was weak and built illegally. Police have registered a case of culpable homicide against the builder.
