Brazilian church roof collapses, 7 killed
At least seven people were killed and more than 50 were injured on Sunday after the ceiling of an evangelical church in Sao Paulo collapsed. The church in the Brazil's biggest city had around 60 people inside at the time of accident.
Seven people were killed and at least 50 were injured when the roof of a church collapsed in Sao Paulo, Brazil, fire officials say.
They say the number of casualties could have been much higher but the accident happened between services when fewer people were inside.
The building belongs to the Reborn in Christ denomination, one of the largest Evangelical Churches in Brazil.
The footballer Kaka was married there in 2005.
The fire service says about 400 people were either entering or leaving the church in a central district of Sao Paulo when the roof collapsed on Sunday.
Hours after the accident, Brazilian television showed pictures of firemen and police officers continuing to search through the rubble for survivors.
