10 more bodies recovered as death toll rises to 31


Ten more dead bodies were recovered on Sunday from the rubble of the building that collapsed in the Moosa Colony area of Lyari on Thursday, bringing the death toll of the tragic incident to 31.
The bodies were shifted to the civil hospital and later handed over to the heirs after legal formalities.
Rescue work continued on the site as Rangers cordoned off the area. A rescue worker, wishing anonymity, told Pakistan Today that the rubble of two floors could not be removed so far and the death toll up might reach 50.
 The relatives of the victims continued to protest at the Moosa Lane Chowrangi and refused to leave the site of the incident even after two days.
The protesters said that they will not move till the rubble is entirely removed. The protesters said that each family has lost three or four family members. They demanded that the president should order reconstruction of the building.
“Just five days ago, I was living in a house full of people who took care of me but now all my family is dead,” said an old woman with tear in her eyes.
   “None of the government officials visited us and shared our pain,” she added.
