PARIS (AP) — French officials say a floor has collapsed at a building where an Easter religious ceremony was being held, killing a 6-year-old and seriously injuring four other people.

The collapse occurred Sunday afternoon at a house used by an evangelical group for religious ceremonies in Pierrefitte, a town near Paris. Local officials say there are 15 slightly injured victims and that the number could rise as rescue workers continue to work.
