Florida condo collapse death toll rises to 9

More than 150 people remain missing four days after the collapse of a beachfront condo in Surfside, Florida.

On Sunday, the number of people dead rose to nine after a person died in hospital, and rescuers recovered four more bodies from the wreckage.

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Chief Alan Cominsky says the rescue teams are quickly pursuing any potential for finding survivors.

"The debris field is scattered throughout and it's compacted, extremely compacted, so it's a very slow process where we have to shore, we have to stabilize the best we can as we're moving through the area, because, again, if there is a void space, we want to make sure we're giving every possibility for survival."

The 12-story Champlain Towers South collapsed early on Thursday.

New UK health secretary on COVID-19

Newly appointed British Health Secretary Sajid Javid says that bringing the coronavirus to an end is his immediate priority.

Javid returns to the cabinet 16 months after he resigned as UK Treasury chief. He had also served as Home Secretary under then-Prime Minister Theresa May.

SA re-imposes stricter COVID-19 lockdown

South Africa has returned to stricter lockdown measures amid the grip of a devastating COVID-19 third wave.

President Cyril Ramaphosa says the latest surge in cases is driven by the Delta variant, which is more contagious.

A curfew has been imposed from 9 pm to 4 am and non-essential establishments will have to close by 8 pm.

Belgium edges Portugal at Euro 2020

Belgium held onto a first-half lead to beat Portugal 1-0 and advance to the quarterfinals of the European Championship.

Thorgan Hazard scored from a long range strike just before the end of the first half.

Head coach Roberto Martinez says his side has shown champions' quality in the game.

"We never lost concentration on the way that Portugal tried the victory into the last second. And probably this gave me an incredible satisfaction because this is what a winning team needs. We all know the talent and the good football that we can play. I think it's all the elements that you need to show were shown today and as a code you couldn't be proud of."

Belgium, which has never won a major tournament title, will next face Italy.

In the other game, the Netherlands suffered a shock exit after a 2-0 defeat to the Czech Republic.

The Netherlands was forced to play most of the second half with 10 men after defender Matthijs de Ligt was sent off for a handball.

Dutch coach Frank de Boer says he is to blame for the loss.

"I'm responsible at the end of the day. It wasn't our best game. It's not that we didn't dominate. In the second half we had even more control. We also created two good opportunities, but this is top sport, played on the top level."

The Czechs capitalized with goals from Tomas Holes and Patrik Schick after getting the one player advantage on the pitch.

They will next play Denmark in the last 8.
