One person was killed and seven others injured in the early hours of Monday when a five-storey residential building collapsed in Egypt's Ismailiya, state news agency MENA reported.

The injured have sustained fractures and concussions.

Rescue teams are currently searching the building's remains for more victims, while the country's general prosecution has ordered a probe into the incident.

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