Nine Turks die in fire in Germany

At least nine Turks, five of them children, were killed and about 60 others were injured in an apartment building fire in the southwestern German city of Ludwigshafen on Sunday. The blaze started during a birthday party. The possibility of arson has been raised because the building was used by Nazis. Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan urged German Interior Minister to investigate the cause of the fire. Expressing his sorrow over the lives lost, he underlined the possibility of arson.
