A four story building collapsed on Saturday in Egypt's Giza, a security source told Ahram Arabic news website.

Security forces evacuated the building of all occupants before its collapse, meaning that there were no deaths or injuries.

The collapse also affected the nearby building that was also evacuated.

The collapsed building is located near the Haram police station in Giza.

On Wednesday, three people were killed when a dilapidated building collapsed in the Mediterranean city of Alexandria.

Building collapses are commonplace in Egypt and are usually due to violations of building specifications, illegal extensions, and lax construction.
