BAKU, August 29 (RIA Novosti) - The bodies of seven workers have been pulled from the rubble of a multi-story building under construction that collapsed on Tuesday in Azerbaijan's capital, Baku.

Nine of the construction workers have been rescued, the country's emergency situations ministry said Wednesday.

The Azerbaijan News Service TV channel said the rescued people had managed to contact friends and relatives by phone, and tell them they were trapped in the building's basement.

Preliminary reports said the cause of the collapse may have been non-compliance with safety regulations at the site.
