The fire aftermath

Sadly, more people were killed than originally thought.

After investigation three people were listed as 'missing', and the body of one of them was reported on Thursday as having been found in the warehouse where the explosion occurred.

Now today Dubai Civil Defence say they have found 'scattered remains of human body parts' but don't yet know whether they are from one body or more.

The death toll is officially three with two missing. I guess this latest grim discovery may be the answer.

7days is reporting 8 dead. Any idea why the discrepancy? (http://www.7days.ae/en/2008/03/30/explosion-toll-now-eight-and-could-still-rise.html)

The discrepancy is, I guess, because different 'journalists' are getting different information from different people at different times.

I suppose that they may find, or have found, more bodies in the wreckage of some of the buildings.
