Honduras prison fire 'killed 355'


Honduran officials say 355 people died in Tuesday's massive prison fire, as the grim process of identifying the bodies begins.

Lorries have been taking the recovered bodies from the jail to a mortuary in the Honduran capital, Tegucigalpa, 100km (60 miles) away.

Relatives are still waiting for details of the casualties, and the cause of the fire is yet to be confirmed.
