BEIJING (AP) - A wedding hall in eastern China has collapsed, killing 10 people who were among more than 200 attending a banquet.

The official Xinhua News Agency cited officials Friday as saying 91 people were hospitalized with injuries, including 11 in critical condition.

There was no immediate word on the cause of Thursday's collapse in the village of Yazhuang in Zhejiang province. However, Xinhua said the structure was old and the roof was straining under the weight of a recent heavy snowfall.
