  • Turkey building collapse death toll hits 14

So far, 14 people have been pulled alive from the wreckage of the building in Istanbul's mostly residential Kartal district.

The eight-story building in the city's Kartal district collapsed on Wednesday.

Environment Minister Murat Kurum, who accompanied Erdogan, said the block had housed 14 apartments and three businesses.

He called on residents to get their buildings checked to make sure they have followed construction codes.

Earlier Saturday, Erdogan and other officials joined mourners at the funeral for nine members of the Alemdar family who lived in the collapsed building. In January 2017, two people died when another building collapsed in a working class part of town. The nine coffins were covered in green cloths. Five other relatives, including two children, are among the 13 people hospitalized in the collapse. The cause is under investigation but officials have said its top three floors were illegally built.

Seven buildings in the surrounding area were evacuated for security reasons following Wednesday's collapse. Ugurlu said "no one spoke to her on the phone".
