Ten Indians killed in fire in Saudi Arabia

At least 10 Indians were killed and six others injured on Wednesday when a major fire gutted a windowless house in Saudi Arabia.

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj in New Delhi said officials of Indian consulate in Jeddah are rushing to Najran following the incident.

"I am aware of the fire tragedy in Najran in which we have lost 10 Indian nationals and six injured are in the hospital," she said in a tweet.

Her response came after a woman, Vidya S, sought the external affairs minister's help to bring back the mortal remains of one of those killed in the incident.
