Russia's Investigative Committee released security camera footage showing the moments after a deadly fire broke out in a shopping mall in the Siberian city of Kemerovo, Russia, killing 64 people. The fire swept through a cinema complex and children's play area on the upper floors of the Winter Cherry shopping mall on March 25. Investigators said last week that fire exits at the mall had been illegally blocked, the public address system was not switched on, the alarm system was broken, and children had been locked inside cinemas. Russian police arrested the general director of ОАО Kemerovo Confectionary Combine, which owned the Winter Cherry mall. Former head of state inspection on construction works in the Kemerovo region, Tanzilia Komkova, was also arrested and charged with failing to stop unauthorized construction and exploitation in the mall.
