An eight-storey building under construction at Barani in Malindi Town collapsed at dawn on Friday.

The building which housed people in its lower floors fell on adjacent residential houses and a petrol station.

It is unclear what caused the building to collapse, though some blamed heavy rains have pounded the region in the past two days causing floods.
