Afro Voice (Northern Cape) - - NEWS -

KE­MEROVO: Rus­sia yes­ter­day be­gan a na­tional day of mourn­ing and held the first fu­ner­als for the vic­tims of a fire that rav­aged a busy shop­ping cen­tre in Siberia and killed 64 peo­ple, most of them chil­dren. Flags were low­ered and en­ter­tain­ment events can­celled for the day of mourn­ing, three days af­ter the dev­as­tat­ing blaze on Sun­day in the city of Ke­merovo. It comes amid pub­lic anger at the bla­tant safety vi­o­la­tions at the mall where chil­dren were trapped in a locked cin­ema and the fire alarm sys­tem was bro­ken. – AFP
