A team of Israeli military experts left for Ghana in the wake of the collapse of a four-story shopping mall in the country's capital.

The delegation includes rescue engineers, medical personnel, and communication experts as well equipment specifically designed to rescue people trapped under the ruins.

The  team left from Israel's Nevatim Air Force base for Accra late Wednesday, hours after the building collapsed, leaving at least four dead, dozens injured and others believed to be trapped in the rubble.

A Magen David Adom team was scheduled to leave Thursday for Accra with plans to set up a field hospital.
