  • Two buildings collapsed suddenly not far from Marseille city centre

Due to the collapse of buildings formed the cloud of dust and a big hole on the spot where formerly stood the house.

Mr Tarabeux said: "It is very, very likely to be five people".

The two buildings, one condemned as substandard and seemingly empty, the other containing apartments, collapsed on Monday.

The buildings collapsed on Monday morning, and emergency services have been combing through the rubble.

"During the first clearing operations we've found some pockets of air that means we still have some hope of finding and identifying a survivor", he said.

French rescue crews who labored through the night say they've found the body of a man in the ruins of two buildings that collapsed in a pile of beams and rubble in the southern city of Marseille. It was not immediately clear why they collapsed, or how many people the apartment building housed.

Dozens of police officers and firefighters have been working overnight in a rescue effort since the buildings collapsed on Monday.

Only one of the buildings, number 65, was occupied.

"We still have hope, even if that hope is fading". The disaster, he added, was "100 percent the fault of city hall".

A young bar waiter watched the scene with tears in his eyes, anxious for news of an Italian woman who lived in the building.

"She was a great girl, she used to come and study at the bar", he said, without giving his name. "It could have been me", she said. However, according to neighbors, it is at the time of the tragedy could be people, particularly the homeless.

Marseille city authorities, who have evacuated and rehoused 100 residents from nearby buildings as a precaution, believe heavy rain may have contributed to the buildings' collapsing.

Marseille authorities launched a vast upgrade plan for the city centre in 2011. In 2011 the local authorities began a plan to renovate the city centre, but a 2015 government report suggested that 100,000 Marseille residents were living in housing unsafe to their health or security.
