Eight elderly residents have died in a fire that ripped through a care home near Zaragoza in northeastern Spain in the early hours of Sunday.

Twelve other people including a carer were injured in the blaze believed to have started when a mattress caught fire at the home in the small town of Cuarte de Huerva.

Victims are, for the most part, thought to have died of carbon monoxide poisoning.
