26 Aug Fatal hospital fire

At least 12 newborn babies were killed in a middle of the night fire which broke out at the Yarmouk Maternity Hospital in Baghdad.

Officials from the Iraq Health authority said later that they believed the blaze was started by faulty electrical wiring.

Further deaths were avoided as hospital staff were able to evacuate 29 nine women and eight babies from the ward and transfer them to alternative accommodation.
