28 Die in Fire at Russian School for Deaf
12 minutes ago 

MOSCOW - A fire raged through a boarding school for the deaf in southern Russia early Thursday, killing 28 children and injuring about 100 others, Russian media reported.

Rescue efforts at the school in Makhachkala were slowed since each of the children had to be awakened individually because they could not hear alarms, NTV television reported.

Four of the injured children were listed in serious condition.

Makhachkala is located near the Caspian Sea about 950 miles southeast of Moscow.

The fire came on the heels of a deadly school blaze in northern Siberia earlier this week. A two-story, old wooden school in a village in the republic of Yakutia was completely destroyed in the fire Monday, which killed 22 students between the ages of 11 and 18 and injured at least 10.

Russia's Izvestia newspaper reported that last year, 700 fires damaged school buildings across Russia.

Just wanted to know if I was the only one who found this humorous in a sick and ironic way?  :tongue:

And the political repercussions of this are....?

Seems like a good candidate for being moved to OTD.
