Refugee brothers die in camp fire

on April 28, 2013 3:20 AM

Four brothers who had fled the civil war in Syria were killed in a fire that engulfed four tents in the Zaatari refugee camp near Jordan’s northern border, the aid worker who runs the camp said Saturday.

Kilian Kleinschmidt of the Office of the U.N. High Commissioner for Refu-gees said he believed the fire was accidental, in contrast to previous fires that officials suspect were deliberately set to protest conditions in the camp.

Kleinschmidt said the brothers from the Mu-barak family — Salem, 6; Mahmoud, 5; Yasen, 4; and Mohammad, 3 — died in a local hospital, two Friday night and two Saturday.
