According to state-broadcaster CCTV a hotel building in Suzhou City, Jiangsu Province, near Shanghai in East China has collapsed in killing one and injuring ten people.
A search and rescue team managed to pull seven survivors under the rubble of the budget Siji Kaiyuan hotel. The operation is still underway.
