At least 62 people died and 160 were injured during the collapse of an exhibition hall in southern Poland on Saturday. The building's roof collapsed with an estimated 500 people inside during a racing pigeon event. Authorities were planning to demolish the rest of the building in Katowice this week and are examining whether the tragedy was caused by weight of snow on the roof or faulty construction.
