10 dead as South Korean building collapses

At least ten people have died after a building collapsed at a South Korean mountain resort. A group of about 560 people were attending a welcoming party for new university students when the tragedy happened, trapping at least 50 and injuring 23, as well as the ten who died. The building was part of a golf resort in the city of Gyeongju, about 375km southeast of Seoul. Heavy snow had built up on the roof, causing the collapse, according to fire department officials.
