Brazil to hold three-day mourning over nightclub tragedy

Buenos Aires, Jan 28 (IANS/RIA Novosti) Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff Monday announced a three-day mourning following a night club tragedy in Santa Maria that killed over 230 people.

Buenos Aires, Jan 28 (IANS/RIA Novosti) Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff Monday announced a three-day mourning following a night club tragedy in Santa Maria that killed over 230 people.

According to latest figures, the fire that broke out at the Kiss club killed 233 people, including 120 men and 113 women.

Over 90 people remain in hospitals with 14 of them in grave condition. So far, 185 of those killed have been identified.

Tarso Genro, governor of Rio Grande do Sul state where the club is located, also announced a week-long mourning in the state.

The fire began early Sunday when a band on stage started a fireworks display. Thick smoke engulfed the venue after acoustic insulation caught fire.

There were at least 1,000 people, most of them students of a local university, in the night club when the fire erupted.

Panic intensified when security guards locked the exit.

Media reports said the guards were unaware of the blaze and tried to stop people from leaving the building without paying.

___ The SUV goes from All-American to global star DETROIT (AP) — Once a hulking symbol of American excess, sport utility vehicles are quickly becoming the world’s favourite way to get around. It’s a surprising rebirth for a vehicle that was the subject of obituaries when gas prices spiked in 2008. Automakers won back customers by making smaller, more fuel-efficient SUVs that also appealed to newly wealthy buyers in Asia and South America and former skeptics in Europe. Indian dr ...
