In France, under the rubble found the bodies of the dead

Two buildings collapsed

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

Arriving at the site Tuesday, Interior Minister Christophe Castaner said "air pockets" under the debris meant there's "hope to locate and find someone that can be saved".

Authorities said they were looking into what caused the collapse.

Rescue work has been hampered by heavy rain, and evidence suggests the collapse has destabilised neighbouring buildings. An adjoining third building, number 67, sustained damage and was torn down for fear it would collapse, as well.

Two buildings, standing five and six storeys, collapsed on Monday morning in Marseille.

Images of the buildings before they collapsed, visible on Google Street View, showed that one of the buildings was clearly in poor fix, with boarded-up windows and large visible cracks on the facade before it collapsed.

Residents said Tuesday the structural risks of the buildings and others like them were widely known, but that city officials did little when alerted about them.

One of those thought dead includes a mother who did not collect her daughter from school on the day of the incident, and another woman who rarely left her apartment.

People were living in the other building that collapsed, 65 rue d'Aubagne.

The two other apartment blocks, which were in such a bad state that they had been condemned, were boarded up and in theory unoccupied.

Marseille Public prosecutor Xavier Tarabeux has confirmed the bodies of three men and two women have pulled from the rubble that is 15m deep in places.

"It's the homes of the poor that are falling down, and that's not a coincidence", said local lawmaker Jean-Luc Melenchon, leader of the leftwing France Unbowed party.

According 2015, about 100 thousand inhabitants of Marseille, live in housing that threatens their health or safety.
