11 die in Dutch airport jail fire

This is heartbreaking.
"They were illegal aliens waiting to be extradited to their countries of origin," Immigration Service spokesman Martin Bruinsma told AP. "We are still busy trying to confirm their identities."

A prisoner told the Dutch television station NOS that guards initially did not take prisoners' warnings of a fire seriously and told them nothing was wrong.

"They didn't open the door. They kept us locked up. Our throats started hurting. We were kicking and screaming," said the detainee who was not identified.
