At least 14 primary schoolchildren have been injured in the Zimbabwean city of Kwekwe when their classroom collapsed into a sinkhole.
Desks and chairs were swallowed up and one girl is reported to have been seriously hurt.
The Globe and Phoenix school is close to two gold mines and local authorities have blamed the accident on illegal underground mining.
Classes have been suspended and officials are trying to find other schools for the pupils.
Earlier the news site ZimLive.com tweeted photos taken at the school in Kwekwe, which is about 200km (125 miles) south-west of the capital, Harare
