Egypt: 13 Workers Dead Under Collapsed Factory

CAIRO (AP) -A security official said Monday rescue teams continued their search for at least 15 more workers believed to be trapped in the
rubble of the factory that collapsed a day earlier.

Nine people were rescued alive, suffering from broken bones, the
official said on condition of anonymity because he was not allowed
to speak to the media.

A committee is investigating whether the rainstorm weakened the
factory's foundations. Officials originally said Sunday the
building had been weakened by nearby construction work.

Winds up to 37 miles (60 kilometers) per hour shut the port of
Alexandria Sunday.
