At least eleven prematurely born babies have been killed in a fire at a maternity hospital in the Iraqi capital Baghdad, authorities have said.

Seven other children and 29 women were rescued from the Yarmouk maternity hospital in the capital early on Wednesday and transferred to another hospital, the Iraqi health ministry said in a statement.

It is not yet known what caused the blaze, but the ministry said it may have been due to an electrical fault.
