One more fire, six more victims in Paris

Six people, including a 6-year-old child, were killed when a fire broke out in a rundown Paris apartment building where African immigrants were living, firefighters said Tuesday.

The latest fire comes just days after a deadly blaze killed 17 Africans in the French capital.

Three other people had serious injuries in the fire, which started late Monday and tore through a six-story building in central Paris where Ivorian immigrants were living, firefighters said.

Some 11 people, including five firefighters, had light injuries.

On Friday, 14 children and three adults were killed in a blaze in southeastern Paris at a rundown apartment building that housed African immigrants. The fire focused attention on the plight of poor immigrants in Paris and drew angry calls for action on behalf of the needy.

French Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy pointed to overcrowding as a reason for the high death toll of that blaze and ordered an inventory of dangerous and overcrowded buildings.
