Scores dead and injured in Bangkok nightclub fire


A fire at a nightclub in Bangkok has killed at least 59 New Year revellers and injured more than 200.

The blaze broke out at the Santika club on Ekkamai, a street popular with Thai and foreign travellers. Dozens of bodies lay on the pavement outside the night club waiting to be taken away in pick up trucks as fire crews moved in to try to douse the smouldering embers. Police say the cause of the blaze has not yet been determined although local media have suggested an electrical fault may be to blame. The interior of the building has been completely destroyed by the fire.
