After the discovery of three more corpses, 41 people died in the collapse of a building located in the south-west Iran. The incident occurred two weeks ago. Local authorities announced the news on Monday, June 6.

The Metropol building in Abadan was being built in the south-west part of the country. It collapsed in the middle of a busy street on May 23.

The disaster, which was one of the most deadly in Iran's history, has prompted a series protests in support of the families and against the corrupt and incompetent authorities.

According to the official IRNA news agency, "The death toll from Metropol crashes rises to 41 after discovery and identifications of three additional bodies." According to the governor's latest report, 38 people were killed. He said that rescue teams were still searching for other (...) body's under the rubble.

A few days later, protests were held in Abadan, and other cities throughout the country to remember the victims and demand that the perpetrators be prosecuted. Regional justice claims that 13 people were arrested, including Abadan's mayor and two former mayors. They are accused of being "responsible for" the tragedy.

Irna quoted Solat Mortazavi, Vice President for Executive Affairs, as saying that "the remains of the building would be completely destroyed once we remove the debris."

The Plasco Building collapsed in Tehran, killing 22 people including 16 firefighters. It was a 15-storey shopping mall that dates back to the 1960s.
