2:07 pm
jump out and we tried to catch them we did try to enter the house but the fire was too hot until certain point there was a blackout when that happened things started falling apart we withdrew after that low. the fire started near the dormitory on the top floor first thing in the morning it quickly ripped through the entire building. by one of the interior of the building is one hundred percent destroyed the mattresses books and all other things in the very damaged but the cause of the fire is still unclear we're still investigating it would have been difficult for the boys to escape as the rooms had barred windows and the fire blocked the only exit i could think of a escape through the window we dismantled the window grill opened the window and climbed down on a pipe we force a window grille open at that time we couldn't think much of a fire department representative says their bodies were found on top of one another suggesting there was a stampede to try and get out a community religious leader led prayers for the students he described the boys as
2:08 pm
cheerful when they held religious events in the community a happy group many of whom have now lost their lives under tragic circumstances. zero well the city's fire chief is called keratin drama he said to us that it does appear the building regulations were not followed at the school. this initial investigation done by all. of us not issued by a local government and also by departments across investigation carried out some. men when the show drawing that i mean that. approval. because that evolution. that that that by our departments to make sure that at least they are. in this school and because of the student cannot get out on the field because

2:10 pm
not. all that. i'm pleased to see these things happen and it's why is it that we all if the mind operate that up the social path if. you have a competition it must comply competently did you comment on i thought. why is it if i'm asked what the end of the the iraqi parliament has voted to remove the governor of kirkuk now the vote comes after a council meeting to discuss plans to hold the referendum on kurdish independence the government is opposed to the referendum earlier this week the parliament authorized the prime minister mr party to quotes take all measures to preserve national unity imran khan joins us on the telephone from bill in iraq how significant is this. well it's very significant as you state the body has been
2:11 pm
given the mandate to try and stop this referendum going ahead has already had a vote in parliament referendum is actually a leak of this kurdish independence referendum is actually real and this is another move to try and put pressure on the. karim is as you say the governor of cookies but a very vocal supporter. independent and this was a direct call from the heart or other body of iraqi prime minister saying that this man should be removed from office so we've had some reaction. before the vote actually took place from a political party saying that the signatures needed to remove him from office. in office despite what the iraqis think this vote will go ahead so it remains to be seen how the government. reacted to all of this but it seems that the kurds are already defined they say that they want to go ahead. the president of the kurdish region the food bazaar he actually went to visit him go back to very publicly.
2:12 pm
go anywhere the government could go anywhere as a result and he says he operates according to the. kirkuk though just to be clear on that point it is not what the kurds would like to see turning into to stop them so does this make mr body feel the need to stamp his authority a vote that he does not want to see taking place. absolutely was going on here is lined with geography it's technically it is iraqi territory however the kurds claim it baghdad says no it's not it's part of federal iraq or forty it's long been a bone of contention. the kurds want the referendum to take place within itself as part of kurdish territory that's angered arab and. m.p.'s from that region who refuse to take part in the vote so far they say it's not of kurdish territory
2:13 pm
