Fire Toll at 37

The death toll from a fire at a Moscow dormitory for foreign students rose to 37 when a Peruvian student died in a hospital, officials said Wednesday as mourners placed carnations alongside the blackened building to show their respects.

The 18-year old died overnight from injuries he received in the fire that erupted before dawn Monday at the dormitory of the Peoples' Friendship University.

The Peruvian Embassy identified the victim as Giancarlo Paitamala Saenz.
