MOSCOW -- A fire in Moscow Monday (November 6) killed six construction workers from Central Asian countries, reported AKIpress, citing Russian law enforcement.
The workers died from carbon monoxide poisoning, according to the report from TASS.
The blaze, which spread over 12 sq. km, either arose from a short circuit or the failure of an electrical heater, say authorities.
The Taliban have been using advanced weapons available only to the Russian military, according to a security source in western Afghanistan.
Popular support in Central Asia for Islamist insurgencies in the Middle East and beyond is waning.
