Ahram Online , Sunday 26 Mar 2017

Two buildings collapsed in Cairo’s Boulaq district leaving at least five injured, the health ministry announced on Sunday.

It is not clear yet what caused the building's collapse.

Another building collapsed last Friday in Cairo’s Garden City district.

Building collapses have long been a problem in Egypt and are usually due to poor maintenance, violations of building codes, illegal extensions and lax construction.
