The number of people killed in an apartment building in central Russia that partly collapsed after an explosion rose to 28 on Wednesday, as hope dwindled that about a dozen others still missing would be found alive.

Rescue work at the site was interrupted for long periods because of fears that more walls would crumble, more than 48 hours after the explosion at 6 a.m. on Monday in the city of Magnitogorsk caught many residents asleep in their beds.
