Enorme woontoren in vlammen in Tsjetsjenië

In een wolkenkrabber van 40 verdiepingen is vanmiddag in het Tsjetsjeense Grozny een hevige brand ontstaan. Honderden mensen moesten geëvacueerd worden. Het vuur verspreidt zich snel via het isolatiemateriaal aan de voorgevel. Het ministerie zegt dat voorlopig nog geen sprake is van slachtoffers. Zo'n honderd brandweermannen zijn ter plaatse. Blushelikopters zijn ingezet.
