BBC > Many dead in Paraguay shop fire

At least 256 people have died in a fire at a shopping centre in Paraguay's capital, Asuncion, officials say.
Hundreds more are injured and the death toll is set to rise as firefighters bring charred bodies out of the debris.
The blaze started at midday on Sunday when the Ycua Bolanos centre was packed with weekend shoppers.
It is thought the fire was caused by a gas explosion. The disaster has overwhelmed the emergency services of one of South America's poorest nations.
