Turkey Photo: Old Town Continues To Crumble
Due for demolition and reconstruction, a house collapses in Istanbul's district of Tarlabasi. As with many mulit-story homes in the old part of Istanbul, several of the inner supports and load-bearing walls of this house were removed, forcing it to crumble into the street. No one was inside the building when it collapsed.
