Johannesburg fire: 74 dead in blaze at city centre building
At least 74 people have died – including 12 children – after a Johannesburg building fire.
More than 50 others were injured.
Officials say it is unclear what sparked the blaze at the city centre five-storey building, which had been abandoned but was being occupied by homeless people.
South African President Cyril Ramaphosa called it a “tragedy”, adding that the “unprecedented” incident was a “wake-up call”.
