TAIPEI, Taiwan — Workers have pulled out 114 bodies from the rubble of a high-rise apartment building that collapsed in an earthquake in Taiwan's oldest city, leaving only one missing, authorities said Saturday, a week after the disaster.

All but two of the 116 bodies recovered in Tainan after the magnitude-6.4 quake struck the city on Feb. 6 were found in the ruins of the Weiguan Golden Dragon building. A total of 327 people in the 17-story building survived.
