Iraq hospital fire

Hospitals in Iraq are in a state of disarray due to years of unrest and chaos.

It was not immediately clear what caused the blaze, but there were reports of an oxygen cylinder exploding.

Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Khadimi has ordered the arrest of the head of the hospital.

Iraqi state media have put the death toll at 64 and about the same number injured.

"Iraq hospital fire: Protests as Covid ward blaze kills at ... - BBC, The hospital fire is clear evidence that we have failed miserably to protect Iraqi lives, and it is time to address these failures," Iraqi Parliament Speaker Mohammed al-Halbousi said in a Twitter message.

According to Reuters news agency, two police vehicles were set on fire in the clashes between the relatives of the victims and the police.

The Corona Ward, which was built three months ago, has a capacity of 70 beds. A medical official told the Associated Press that there were 63 patients in the hospital when the fire broke out.

A security card at the hospital told Reuters: "I heard an explosion inside the coronavirus ward, after which a fire broke out." A search operation is underway at the hospital.
