From wire reports, RIGA

 More than 110 witnesses have been questioned as part of the Zolitude tragedy case, Latvian State Police Chief Ints Kuzis has said. Experts have also been invited to provide consultations on important investigation matters, reports LETA.

It has emerged that up to 20 people were saved between the first and second roof collapse at the Maxima supermarket  whilst three rescuers died.

Interior minister Rihards Kozlovskis said  the number of casualties would have been higher if without rescuers hadn't entered the supermarket and saved people,

At least 54 people, including three firefighters, died and several dozen were injured after the Maxima supermarket in Riga's Zolitude neighborhood collapsed on Nov. 21. The search and rescue operation in the Riga supermarket tragedy lasted 93 hours and 54 minutes.

A total of 557 persons participated in the search and rescue efforts. Over 20 rescue vehicles were also used, as well as five cranes, several tractors and other equipment.
