“Six people were killed and six injured -- all construction workers of (various) Asian nationalities,” Colonel Saleh Ali al-Mutawa said, adding that the injuries were light to medium and that he did not expect the toll to rise.

The building in Al-Zaid, 55 kilometers (35 miles) east of Sharjah city and part of the emirate of Sharjah, was being built by a private Emirati company for the government and was supposed to house a youth center, Mutawa said.
