Twelve people have died after a fire tore through a Moscow market warehouse where migrant workers were living.
(AFP) Moscow - Unconfirmed news reports said the migrants came from the impoverished Central Asian nation of Tajikistan. Numerous Moscow markets employ cheap labourers from the region without giving them proper housing conditions or pay.
The blaze erupted early on Tuesday at a market on the southern outskirts of the city called Kachalovsky. Officials said it took two hours to put out.
