“A total of 132 people are still trapped beneath the rubble of a Taiwan apartment tower that collapsed in a powerful earthquake, a local government official says.

“The figure is much higher than authorities first estimated, as rescuers combed the wreckage of the 17-storey building in the southern city of Tainan with sniffer dogs and acoustic equipment, looking for signs of life.

“Rescue crews believed 29 of those still trapped could be reached more easily than the rest who were buried deeper in the rubble, the Tainan city official said.

“More than 250 people have so far been rescued from the Wei-kuan apartment complex in the southern city of Tainan since the magnitude-6.4 quake hit at 4:00am Saturday local time (7:00am AEDT), killing 14 people and toppling four blocks of about 100 homes in total.”
