The body of a woman was found under the debris of two collapsed buildings in the southern French city of Marseille on Tuesday evening, taking the death toll to four, prosecutor Xavier Tarabeux told AFP.

The corpses of two men and another woman were recovered by rescue workers earlier Tuesday from the 15-metre (50-foot) pile of rubble on Rue d'Aubagne, a narrow shopping street. The buildings suddenly collapsed on Monday morning.
