Ten students killed and more than 100 injured after South Korean university roof collapses during welcome ceremony

Ten university students have died and more than 100 injured after the roof of a building collapsed in a South Korean city during a welcoming ceremony for first year students, officials said.
Emergency staff worked through the night to pull people from the rubble and rush the injured on stretchers to waiting ambulances, as snow, sleet and icy roads hampered rescue operations.
The collapse happened last night as about 560 students from Busan University of Foreign Studies had gathered for a two-day freshman orientation at the Manua Ocean Resort in the southeastern city of Gyeongju when a crack appeared in the auditorium ceiling before the collapse.
