AMSTERDAM - Part of a Dutch football stadium under renovation in the city of Enschede collapsed on Thursday, trapping an unknown number of people under the rubble, Dutch police said.

"Part of the roof has collapsed. There are people under the rubble. We don't know how many," a police spokesman said.

The spokesman could not comment on whether anyone was killed or injured. The roof's partial collapse probably was related to construction work at the stadium, he added.

A large number of police, fire brigade and ambulances are heading to or have arrived at the scene, news agency ANP reported.
