11 babies killed in hospital fire

BAGHDAD (Reuters) – At least eleven prematurely born babies were killed in a fire that broke out in the early hours of Wednesday at a maternity hospital in Baghdad that was probably caused by an electrical fault, the health ministry said.

Seven other children and 29 women were rescued from the Yarmouk maternity hospital and transferred to another hospital, the ministry said in a statement.
