Russia: 'A massive tragedy' — Mourners pay tribute to victims of Kemerovo blaze

Mourners gathered outside the Winter Cherry shopping centre in Kemerovo, Monday, to pay tribute to the victims of the blaze that tore through the facility a day earlier. Mourners brought flowers, candles and stuffed toys to the memorial to honour the victims, many of whom were children. According to the Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations (EMERCOM), the death toll has risen to 64... Еще. Emergency crews continue their rescue mission, with more people feared trapped beneath the rubble. The Investigative Committee is considering three causes of the incident, including a malfunction of the electrical wiring, an arson attack or a spontaneous ignition in the children's area, with some reports claiming that a child may have got hold of a lighter and set foam-rubber balls on fire. The source of the blaze was located on the top floor where several cinema halls and children's playgrounds with attractions are located.
