Fire sweeps through Saudi hospital, at least 24 dead
The fire broke out at the general hospital in the southwestern port city of Jazan, the capital of the Jizan region, one of Saudi Arabia's poorest areas. The civil defense agency said 25 people died but a later statement by Health Minister Khalid al-Falih put the death toll at 24. Photographs published on Twitter by the civil defense agency showed heavy smoke and an intense blaze which appeared to have severely damaged the interior of the white-walled hospital.
