    Rescuers have recovered the fourth body from the collapsed nine-storey building in the Georgian capital Tbilisi, a spokesman for the city's emergencies service has said.

    The building, located in the city's Ortachala district, was undergoing large-scale renovation when it collapsed on Friday. Four construction workers were thought to be inside at the moment of the accident. Two bodies were recovered shortly after the collapse and the third body early on Sunday.

    "Today, we have finally found the body of the fourth worker under the building's rubble," Temur Giorgadze said.

    The building formerly belonged to the Georgian ministry of defense before being handed over to the justice ministry.
