BBC News. Hello, I'm Jerry Smit. Indian Police say a factory fire in Delhi has killed at least 43 people. The huge blaze in the city's crowded old quarter broke out in the early hours of the morning. About 50 people have been rescued and taken to hospital. The Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the authorities were providing all possible assistance. John McManus reports. The fire began in one of Delhi's many factories sweeping through a 6-story building in a congested residential area. Local media say the building was packed with handbags and other material, all of which helped the fire to grow in strength. As well as retail goods, the emergency services say some laborers were also sleeping inside the building, a common occurrence for Indian's many poor migrant workers. Dozens of fire appliances rushed to the scene to help extinguish the blaze, though the district's narrow streets made access very difficult.
The Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has presented what he called a budget of resistance to parliament. Mr. Rouhani said the package was designed to counter crippling US sanctions by limiting dependence on Iran's oil exports, which Washington has targeted. President Rouhani also announced a 15% increase in public sector wages.
Weather conditions have eased in the Australian state of New South Wales, allowing firefighters to make some progress in tackling major bush fires. Falling wind speeds and increased moisture in the air have allowed the emergency services to prepare containment lines ahead of a further heat wave expected on Tuesday. These residents spoke of their experiences while waiting for the fire services. When you want someone came up, we just had to do. We had to do it, but before we did it, we prayed because without God, we can't do nothing. As it came up as a great big wall of fire and here it's us standing here fighting it with our hoses and it was very scary. Some we never want to see again, really so pretty scary, pretty hot, pretty intense. News from the BBC.
An artwork featuring a ripe banana duct-taped to a wall that sold for $120,000 has been eaten by another artist. The work by Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan was being on display in Miami, but an American performance artist, David Datuna, pulled it from the wall and ate it. Daniel Pontet was visiting the gallery at the time. He was repeating all the time when the police arrived that I was part of the his performance. In the same way that as the artist put the banana out on the wall, he say, I'm coming here to eat the banana, that's my performance. He left and the police removed him from the fair. Mr. Datuna said the artwork was delicious. BBC news.
