3 killed in Moscow building collapse

Part of a building collapsed in downtown Moscow Wednesday, killing at least three people, a city emergency official said.
The ceilings and walls caved in at the site of a six-story apartment building that was being reconstructed, Moscow emergency spokesman Yevgeny Bobylyov said.
By Wednesday evening, rescuers had pulled three bodies from the rubble, he said. It was unclear whether the victims were workers.
The site is close to Moscow's Old Arbat, a pedestrian street that is popular with tourists.
