73 killed in Johannesburg fire

At least 73 people, including a child, have been killed in a fire in South Africa’s biggest city.

The multi-storey building in Johannesburg is reported to have been used by homeless people.

Authorities say the blaze has largely been put out, but black smoke is still seeping out of windows.

Sky’s Africa Correspondent Yousra Elbagir is in the city:

“I think this speaks to a broader issue around the neglect of the infrastructure in the Old City Center in Johannesburg, where we’ve seen two other fires happen in recent months. We’ve also seen a gas explosion in one of the main roads.”
