Two suspects Contested Following Strasbourg fire kills 5, injures 7

Prosecutors are granted more time to question two suspects within a dreadful fire in a building in Strasbourg that left five dead and seven wounded.

The expansion was granted after another expert indicated criminal participation at the blaze, sources told AFP.

Nearly 50 firefighters tackled the inferno, which started in the wee hours of Thursday and abandoned nine other citizens homeless.

Local officials initially suspected an electric fault as the possible cause.
