PH embassy identifying Filipino victims of Iraq hotel fire

The Philippine embassy in Baghdad clarified on Sunday, February 7, that there are 13 Filipino fatalities in last Friday’s hotel fire, not 14 as earlier reported. A team from the Philippine embassy, led by chargé d’affaires Elmer Cato, is in Erbil to identify the Filipino victims and bring their remains home. Cato said the victims, all females, were suffocated by the smoke while trying to find their way out. The fire, which struck the basement of the Capitol Hotel in Erbil – capital of Iraq’s Kurdistan region, also left 6 others dead.
