Riga, Latvia – Latvian police say the death toll from the collapse of a crowded supermarket roof has risen to 52 and that the rescue operation has temporarily been halted.

An investigation into the Baltic state’s deadliest accident ever has started, and preliminary reports indicate that the supermarket roof caved in due to either faulty construction or building activities on the roof, where workers were creating a garden area and children’s playground.
