At least 12 people, almost all of them schoolchildren, have been killed after a fire broke out in a girls' dormitory in Turkey's southern province of Adana, according to the local governor.
The fire, which officials said was likely caused by an electrical fault, spread rapidly through the building's wooden interior late on Tuesday, as panicked victims tried to jump from windows to safety.
