Liberia Consoles President Obama Over Deaths In Fire Incident

MONROVIA, December 10 (LINA) -  President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has sent a message of condolence to the President of the United States of America, Mr. Barack Obama, following the death of 36 persons and the injury of many others in a fire disaster in California recently.

On Friday, December 2, the tragedy occurred when fire broke out during an electronic dance party, killing dozens who could not escape from the dilapidated two-storey warehouse, known locally as the Ghost Ship in Oakland, California.

According to a Foreign Ministry release, President Sirleaf, in her message to her American counterpart, said: “The people of Liberia join me in extending to you and the people of the United States, especially the families of the victims, deepest condolences for this tragedy and irreparable loss.”

The Liberian leader prayed that God Almighty will grant President Obama and the people of the United States courage, strength and fortitude during this period of mourning.
