ACCRA - The owner of a shopping mall which collapsed in the Ghanaian capital apologized on Friday for the loss of lives but denied accusations he had not obtained authorization for the building.

At least nine people died when the mall, operated by Indian retailer Melcom Ltd, caved in shortly after opening for business on Wednesday. Some 70 survivors have been rescued and sent to nearby hospitals.

On Wednesday, the IDF dispatched a humanitarian delegation to Accra. The team of experts from the Home Front Command, trained for search and rescue missions, provided assistance and care to the wounded.
