Recommended Posts

Still Waters

At least 23 children have been killed in a fire at a boarding school in a suburb near the Liberian capital Monrovia.

The fire is believed to have broken out in the early hours of the morning, when school students were sleeping in a building attached to a mosque.

Police have told the BBC that they are still looking for bodies in the building in the Paynesville area.

President George Weah has tweeted his condolences to bereaved families.

This is so sad. My condolences to the families. CNN is reporting 26 children and 2 teachers have been killed. Some were as young as 10. They also reported that there were security bars on the windows preventing escape.
