Taiwan: At least 22 dead in apartment block inferno in Kaohsiung city

According to media reports, at least 22 people died on Thursday in a fire in a high-rise building in the southern Taiwanese port city of Kaohsiung. The number of victims could increase as many residents were trapped on the upper floors.

The newspaper “Apple Daily” reported 22 deaths, while the city government had initially only spoken of 15 people “without signs of life” and one confirmed death. More than 50 people were injured.
