Latvia supermarket remains demolished after collapse

Diggers have been working on demolishing the remains of the Riga supermarket where 54 people died after the roof collapsed.

The Latvian President Andris Berzins has described the collapse as "murder", and called for foreign experts to investigate what happened.

Latvia has begun three days of national mourning for the deadliest disaster since the former Soviet republic gained independence in 1991.
