2 more dead at Prague hotel fire

Prague, Czech Republic – 21 January 2018 –
Two more people have died from their injuries sustained in a hotel fire in central Prague, raising the death toll to four.

“Two women have died at our hospital on Sunday,” Michal Schneider, spokesman for the General University Hospital in Prague, told Agence France-Press.

Two people had died during the blaze, which broke out at the four-star Eurostars David hotel in the Czech capital on Saturday evening.

Czech media said they were a 21-year-old German man and a 20-year-old South Korean woman.

Five people, including the two women who died Sunday, suffered very serious injuries, and another four people were treated by Prague ambulance, its spokeswoman Jana Postova told AFP.

Dutch, Turkish and French tourists were among the nine people injured.
