Death toll in India blaze goes up to 91

Six hospital managers arrested on negligence charges are in custody for questioning after a hospital blaze killed 91  people in eastern India, authorities said Sunday.
A local court sent the six to 10-day police custody, inspector P.S. Mukhopadhyay said.
The six worked at the five-story Kolkata hospital that erupted into flames at 4 a.m.
Video of the scene showed crowds of people wearing face masks rushing patients out onto the street in stretchers.

    India poses a clear and present danger to the regional security of the world. USA...NATO...Pakistan and Afghanistan people and armed forces. Hindu cult extremism is on the rise and fanning all terrorism worldwide. Indians are the bankers to and financing terrorism and supporting Talibans and Al Qaeda and harboring them in India. These terrorists are being entertained in the Indian parliament building in New Delhi where they are residing and then smuggle dover to Pakistan in Indian Army helicopters. Shame on these Indians. Like the NAZI's they need to be stopped forcefully and immediately. If it takes bombing lets bomb India, if it takes Drones...lets drone New Delhi
