7 Syrian Children Die in Canadian House Fire

Seven children of a Syrian family were killed in a house fire in Canada’s province of Nova Scotia, police said Tuesday. 

Halifax Police said seven children – including a three-month-old baby – were killed in the early-morning fire.

The children’s parents were injured while attempting to rescue them. 

The family moved to Canada around two years ago.

“Our entire municipality is heartbroken and our thoughts are with the loved ones of the family,” the city’s mayor said in a statement following the incident.
