Mexico City — Authorities in southern Mexico say at least 20 people were injured when construction scaffolding collapsed in a cathedral.
An online statement from the Oaxaca state government says the scaffolding came down Thursday afternoon at La Barca Cathedral in the city of Tuxtepec. It adds that most of the injured were construction workers who were laboring at the site.

Photos posted on Flickr by the state government showed rescue workers picking through a large, jumbled pile of wood and rebar in the apse of the cathedral, amid bare brick and concrete walls.
Authorities were investigating the cause.
