Reuters-Fifteen people were killed at a wedding in Peru on Sunday (January 27) after a wall at the hotel where the celebration was held collapsed under heavy rains, the head of Peru’s civil defense institute said.

Thirty-four people were wounded, including five who were in critical condition, Jorge Chavez said by phone.

The wall burst just after midnight, causing a heavy, tent-like structure to collapse on the wedding guests as they celebrated in the hotel’s garden, Chavez said. Thirteen people died immediately, he said.

Hotel Alhambra, in the town of Abancay in southern Peru, could not immediately be reached for comment.
