At least 26 children died in the fire of a Koranic school in Liberia. The public radio gave the news in a tweet. The tragedy, whose causes are not yet known, took place in Paynesville, a commercial suburb of the capital Monrovia.

"Please - Liberian President George Weah wrote on his Twitter profile - for the families of children who died last night in Paynesville following their school fire. This is a difficult time for families and for all of Liberia". "My heartfelt condolences - added Weah - to families in mourning and to the entire Islamic community".
