Another source said that firefighters did not arrive at the scene until two hours after the market was engulfed by fire.

Hoodlums took advantage of the situation and vandalised shops, while some victims remained trapped in the inferno.

Five bodies were evacuated to the morgue, while one could not be recovered in the ashes.
