12 dead in suspected arson attack in Moscow

A criminal investigation is underway after fire crews found 12 bodies in the wreckage of a burning building in Moscow.

Arson is suspected after the sewing factory went up in flames overnight into Sunday in the northeast of the Russian capital. It is not known if the huge blaze killed all the victims – including three children – with suggestions the fire had several sources and could have been started deliberately to cover up a crime.

The dead are said to have been migrant workers.
