Seven Nigerian female student die in dormitory fire

Officials says that at least seven female students have died after a fire at a boarding school hostel near the northern Nigerian city of Kano on Sunday night.

Most of the deaths resulted from a stampede as hundreds of students rushed to escape the blaze through two exits, the Kano state officials said.
Twenty-five others were injured in the fire which broke out as students were sleeping at the government-run girls school in Jogana village, they added.

It is not being treated as suspicious.
