Fire kills 19 Ugandan girls
afrol News, 16 April- 19 Ugandan girl students of Buddo Primary School, 12km from the capital, Kampala, were killed by an overnight fire that gutted their dormitory.
Two adults also died in the incident that had been worsened by the locking of the dormitory doors from outside. Though the dormitory had 63 beds, but it was not clear how many children were occupying it at the time of the outbreak. Several student survivors have been rushed to Mulago hospital, with some in critical condition.
