At least 17 killed in Mozambique capital as pile of garbage collapses

The collapse happened around 3 a.m. (0100 GMT) in the impoverished Hulene neighbourhood, which is nearly 10 km (6 miles) from the centre of Maputo. The houses were built illegally and authorities had previously asked the residents to leave, officials said.

Land pressure in many African cities leads some people to squat on land they do not own as they seek higher wages available in urban centres. The dwellings are sometimes built on land that is marginal or unsafe.
