BRASIL: 28 Jan. UPDATE: 17 Dead, 7 Missing After Rio Buildings Collapse.

                          Some DETAILS ONLY Changed

     Rescuers continued to search rubble in Rio's historic downtown...after 3 buildings collapsed...killing at least 17...with 7 still missing.
     Six people were pulled from the rubble.
    The commercial buildings were mostly empty Wednesday night.
    Officials can't yet fully explain why a 20-story...and a 10-story building...suddenly crumbled onto a 4-story structure.
    But illegal construction on the tallest structure may have started a domino effect that resulted in the tragedy.
    Others are blaming a gas leaks.
