Eleven people were charged with manslaughter in a Tanzanian court on Wednesday following the collapse of a tower block last week in which 36 people died.
The 11, who include the owner of the Dar es Salaam building, Raza Hussein Ladha, as well those involved in its construction including an architect, engineers and surveyors, have yet to enter a plea.
Prosecuting lawyer Bernard Kongola said the accused had "unlawfully killed 24 people". Although 36 people died in the disaster in the Tanzanian economic capital, only 24 have as yet been formally identified.
