15 children dead in fire at Haiti orphanage
At least 15 children were killed on Friday in a fire at a Haiti orphanage run by a US-based Christian non-profit group, according to the authorities.
Melton, Haiti's chief of child protection for UNICEF, the United Nations' children's agency said, "The blaze took place at the Orphanage of the Church of Bible Understanding in Port Au Prince".
"Unfortunately, the Fermathe hospital where the victims were admitted couldn't do much. They were already in serious condition and breathing very weakly even before they arrived there," the official said.
