All 23 victims in KL tahfiz school fire identified

BREAKING: Massive blaze 'kills 25 students' in their boarding school beds

Khirudin Drahman, the director of Kuala Lumpur's fire and rescue department, said: "It really does not make sense for so many to die in the fire".

Officials say that this is the worst fire disaster to strike the country in two decades.

A number of students were also taken to the hospital, some suffering from smoke inhalation.

One of the religious teachers who escaped the fire said he woke up at 5.30am to the sound of gas hissing from above.

"We want to solve this as fast as possible, because everyone wants to know what caused the fire", he said.

Experts estimate roughly 1.2 million Florida residents have been ordered to evacuate. The connection between climate change and Harvey's impact is irrefutable.

"There was information that there had been a fight between students of the religious school recently".

Students live in numerous religious schools in the country but authorities have raised concerns about the safety measures at these schools because they are unregulated.

Firefighters and witnesses described scenes of horror - first of boys screaming for help behind barred windows as neighbours watched helplessly, and later of burnt bodies huddled in corners of the rooms in the Pusat Tahfiz Darul Quran Ittifaqiyah. One survivor said there was just one window the boys managed to open.

"The sad part is, during this incident, there was only one entrance to exit through, so the students were trapped inside", Singh said.

"For the time being our focus is on the sudden death report and fire report only, unless there are new leads following the postmortem and bomba reports".

The incident is being investigated as negligence, the fire chief, Wan Mohd Nor Ibrahim, told state news agency Bernama. Seven people suffered injuries relating to the fire, while 11 who were rescued also escape harm from the flames.

Former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad is disappointed that the fire incident involving a tahfiz school in Kedah nearly three decades ago, has repeated itself in yesterday's tragedy.

"It is premature to tell the cause of the fire". The Star newspaper reported that since 2015, there have been 211 fire accidents involving unregistered and private religious schools in Malaysia.

The disaster has renewed calls for greater scrutiny of so-called "tahfiz" schools, where students learn to memorise the Quran.
