11 people died after a 50-year-old building collapsed in Thane last night. Many others are feared trapped under the debris.

Reports say the municipality had declared the old, dilapidated property dangerous to live in, but the residents had refused to vacate.

More than 100 people have died in residential building collapses in Mumbai in the last two years.

Property prices and rent in Mumbai are among the highest in Asia. Many citizens are forced to live in old, dilapidated properties in a land-scarce city where an estimated 60% of its 18 million people live in slums and shantytowns.
