Deadly fire breaks out at Taiwan hospital

At least nine people have been killed in a fire at a hospital in Taiwan. The fire broke out on in a ward on the seventh floor of the hospital in New Taipei City. About 16 other people, including patients and staff, remain in a critical condition. The cause of the fire is not yet clear, though media reports say it could have been started by an electrical fault in a moveable bed. Reports say 33 patients and three staff members were evacuated from the Weifu hospital in the northern region of the city after a fire broke out.
