Two children died and another was injured on Monday when two buildings collapsed in Upper Egypt’s Sohag, Al-Ahram Arabic news website reported.

A boy died in Sohag’s Gerga, when the roof of his family home collapsed. While in Tama, a girl died and another was injured.

Investigations reveal that the house that collapsed in Gerga was old and ill-maintained, while the second house in Tama collapsed due to contruction work on a neighbouring building.

It is not uncommon for buildings to collapse in Egypt, often due to age, illegal extensions and failure to comply with building regulations.
