Gas leak blamed for German workshop fire

A fire which killed 14 people on Monday at a workshop for disabled people in south-western Germany was the fault of a gas leak, investigators say.

An inquiry into possible charges of manslaughter by negligence has been opened into the blaze, in the Black Forest town of Titisee-Neustadt.

The centre, where disabled people were working on ornaments for Christmas markets, is run by the Caritas charity. Police say all 14 people who died have now been identified.
