NEW DELHI (AP) - A top police official says at least 32 people have been killed and many more are trapped under debris after a five-story building collapsed in a congested neighborhood in New Delhi.

B.K. Gupta, New Delhi Police Commissioner, says at least 60 people were injured when the building on the Indian capital's east side collapsed.

Emergency workers were trying to pull out people trapped under the debris, but their efforts were hampered as fire engines found it difficult to navigate the narrow alleys of Lalita Park, a residential area.
