At least eight university students were killed and dozens feared injured after a building collapsed in the South Korean city of Gyeongju.

About 450 foreign language students were gathered in the building for a freshman orientation event when it collapsed late Monday.

Many of the students were able to safely evacuate the building. Rescue workers are continuing to search for others believed to be trapped.

South Korean officials speculate heavy snow on the roof of the building may have caused the collapse.
