Thirteen congregants of the Pentecostal Church at the Dlangubo area of eMpangeni on the KwaZulu-Natal north coast have been killed.

This after their church building collapsed on them during a Passover service. Sixteen other people have been seriously injured.

Health officials say the building collapsed due to heavy rainfall in northern parts of the province. A team of government officials are set to visit the scene on Friday.
