Read it in Russian

The number of people killed by a roof collapse at an exhibition hall in the Polish city of Katowice has reached at least 60, 141 are wounded, reports BBC. The victims were attending a racing pigeon show.

The Katowice International Fair building was constructed in 2000. According to experts, most probably the collapse was caused by snow accumulated on the roof. However, representatives of the citys construction department rejected the assumption, saying that snow was regularly wiped off from the roof, and there have been no abundant snowfalls recently.

The accident occurred on January 28 at 17:15 local time. Up to 700 people could be inside the hall of 10,000 of square meters.
