In southern Nigeria, rescue and recovery operations after still under way after the roof of a church caved in, trapping hundreds of worshippers. The death toll is estimated at 160, however it's expected to rise as more bodies are pulled from the rubble. Hundreds of people were inside Reigners Bible Church in the city of Uyo on Saturday, when the metal girders broke and the corrugated iron roof caved in. Building collapses are not uncommon in Nigeria. In 2014, 116 people died when a multi-storey guest-house collapsed in Lagos.
