Doha trial delayed again

5:27 am on 12 October 2012

A trial over the deaths of 19 people, including New Zealand triplets, in a fire in Qatar in May, has been delayed again, after two of the accused again failed to turn up.

An official report found the fire at the Villagio Mall in Doha, started in the roof of a Nike shop when a light failed.

A hearing was postponed last month when three of the accused failed to front.
