At least 112 killed in temple fire in Indian state of Kerala

The death toll from Sunday’s temple fire in the southern Indian state of Kerala has now risen to at least 112. Thousands of devotees were packed into the temple to mark the start of the local Hindu new year. The blaze started when a fire-cracker fell onto a shed where fireworks were stored, sparking a string of powerful explosions that blew the roof of the administrative block of the temple, and caused another building to collapse. Police are continuing to investigate the incident.
