MANILA-- Two pupils died and eight others were injured when a derelict school building collapsed amid stormy weather in the southern Philippines, police said Thursday.

The children were playing just outside the two-storey building in a small town in Lanao del Norte province when it collapsed, provincial police chief inspector Glen Janog told AFP.

"The town was experiencing heavy rains and strong winds when the building collapsed," Janog said.

The building was built in the 1950's and had not been used for years, but was still part of the school campus, according to Janog.

Janog said the dead and injured children were in grades four to six, meaning they were roughly 10 to 12 years old.
