NEW DELHI (AP) — Police say they've arrested nine people, including builders, police officers and municipality officials, for colluding to illegally construct a residential building in India's financial capital that collapsed, killing 74 people.
Police commissioner K.P. Raghuvanshi says two builders were arrested for allegedly paying bribes to police and municipality officials to construct the eight-story building in the Mumbai suburb of Thane without any official sanction.
The building came crashing down on Thursday in the country's worst house collapse in recent decades.
Raghuvanshi said Sunday that police will formally charge the nine with culpable homicide and causing death by negligence at the end of an investigation into the accident.
If convicted, they can be sentenced to up to life in prison.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — More than 1,000 college students from across the country and abroad have descended on St. Louis this weekend in search of both inspiration and philanthropic generosity.
Former President Bill Clinton's philanthropic foundation is hosting the event at Washington University. Celebrities such as actors Matthew Perry and Jada Pinkett Smith and comedian Stephen Colbert (kohl-BEHR') joined Clinton at a series of workshops and panel discussions on topics ranging from world hunger and prescription drug abuse to the spiraling national debt.
Student participants say they feel both inspired and challenged by the business and civic leaders and human rights activists leading the discussions. Some are also using the opportunity to pitch service projects to potential donors gathered at the campus event.
