Most of the victims died in their beds from inhaling noxious black smoke that filled AMRI Hospitals rooms and corridors after the fire broke out before dawn on Friday and medical staff fled. Authorities had warned hospital administrators in September about the basement, where radiation equipment was stored, but no action was taken to improve safety, said West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, who pulled the hospitals licence. The AMRI Hospital recently rated by an Indian magazine as one of the best in Kolkata also did not have proper firefighting equipment, according to state Disaster Management Minister Javed Khan. The hospital denied that safety measures were brea ched. Police have charged six hospital directors with culpable homicide. Authorities were still trying to determine what caused the blaze but said no radiation leak has been detected. Witnesses say many medical staff abandoned the hospitals 160 or so patients and fled the fire. Firefighters took more than an hour to ar rive, and then had trouble bringing fire trucks close to the seven-storey hospital because of the neighbourhoods narrow streets. Rescue workers on ladders smashed windows to reach patients on the upper floors, and most survivors were taken to a nearby hospital although at least 25 of the most critical patients were still being kept in AMRI Hospitals main wing yesterday until they could be relocated. Safety regulations are routinely ignored at Indian hospitals, with few having fire stairways or holding evacuation drills. Even if fire extinguishers are present, they are commonly several years old and never serviced. Plane crashes in packed slum MANILA: A four-seater cargo plane has crashed into a crowded Philippines slum, sparking a fire that killed 12 people including three children and left at least 20 injured, officials say. Yesterdays crash killed the pilot and co-pilot, while the rest of the victims are thought to be residents of the shanty town, said Inspector Enrique Sy. The plane struck one house but the others also went up in flames. These are informal settlers, packed into rows of houses, Sy said. Virginia Tech students hold a candlelight vigil for police officer Deriek Crouse who was gunned down on Thursday Shooting conjures haunting memories BLACKSBURG, Virginia: US police have identified the Virginia Tech gunman as a part-time student from nearby Radford University, though they still do not know what led him to kill a police officer and then himself. Thursdays shooting shook the campus, the scene of the United States worst mass slaying in recent memory four years ago. The day before the shooting, 22-year-old Ross Truett Ashley stole a sport utility vehicle at gunpoint from a real estate office in nearby Radford, police said. He dumped the car on the Virginia Tech campus, and it was found on Thursday. Police said he walked up to the police officer he did not know and fired, then took off for the campus greenhouses, ditching his jumper, wool cap and backpack. He made his way to a nearby parking lot and, when a deputy spotted him, he shot himself. Deriek W. Crouse, 39, was the police officer killed. He had been on the Virginia Tech force for four years, after 33 people were killed in a classroom building and dormitory on April 16, 2007. Civilians shot dead in Syria NICOSIA: At least 41 civilians including seven children were shot dead on Friday by Syrian security forces in the capital Damascus and the central city of Homs, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said. It said yesterday that 12 people among them two children aged 10 and 12 were killed in Homs and that a 14-year-old boy was killed in Aqrab village in the Homs area where the opposition says the regime is planning a massacre. Woman faked robbery, rape SACRAMENTO: A California state prison psychologist has been charged with faking her own rape in an unsuccessful bid to persuade her husband to move to a safer neighbourhood, authorities say. Laurie Ann Martinez conspired with a friend, Nicole April Snyder, to create the appearance that she was robbed and raped in her Sacramento home in April, according to the charges filed. If convicted of conspiracy, each woman faces up to three years in prison. Violence over poll dispute KINSHASA: Protests have erupted in the Democratic Republic of Congos capital after incumbent Joseph Kabila was named winner of the election and his rival Etienne Tshisekedi rejected the result, declaring himself president. Gunshots rang out on Friday in the neighbourhood of Limete, site of Tshisekedis party headquarters, and in Bandale protesters set tyres on fire and threw stones at police who fired tear gas back at them.
