Heydar Aliyev Foundation provided assistance to victims of fire in Bucharest

Bucharest, November 2, AZERTAC

The Heydar Aliyev Foundation has provided assistance to the victims of a fire that occurred at a Colectiv nightclub in Bucharest. The Heydar Aliyev Foundation donated all necessary medicines to a plastic surgery hospital where those injured in the incident are being treated. Romanin Minister of Health Nicolae Bănicioiu and hospital management expressed gratitude to the Heydar Aliyev Foundation and its President Mehriban Aliyeva for the assistance.

Romania's government declared a three-day national mourning on Saturday, after an overnight fire in a Bucharest nightclub killed 27 people and injured 184 during a rock concert that featured fireworks used indoors.

In one of the capital's worst disasters in decades, up to 500 people, mostly young adults, stampeded for the only available exit as the club in the basement of a Communist-era sport-shoe factory filled with smoke.

Officials and witnesses said fireworks were used inside the club, while Colectiv Club's Facebook page advertised pyrotechnic effects at the show.
