At least four people have been killed, following a fire at a movie theatre, in a mall in the Peruvian capital, Lima.
At least four people died in a fire in a movie theatre at a popular seaside mall in Lima on Wednesday, ahead of a global summit bringing together presidents from the United States, Russia, China, Japan and other countries this week.
The victims appeared to be two men and two women, but the bodies were so charred that it would be hard to determine their sex and identities with certainty, Police General Hugo Begazo said on local broadcaster RPP. Begazo added that 13 people were missing at the Larcomar shopping centre.
Larcomar, managed by Chilean company Parque Arauco SA, put out a statement, saying the fire was in the movie theatre and the causes are under investigation.
