Parents of Doha mall fire triplets speak of grief

The parents of two-year-old triplets who died in the mall fire in Doha, Qatar, earlier this week have spoken about their grief over losing their children.

New Zealanders Martin and Jane Weekes said their children "made everyone happy wherever they went".

The shopping centre killed 19 people and the interior ministry said 13 of the victims at the Villaggio centre were children.

The cause of the fire, believed to have started in the centre's nursery, is under investigation.
