At least five people are dead after a basement hotel in the Russian city of Perm was flooded with boiling water. Officials say the overnight incident at the mini-hotel Caramel was the result of a burst hot water pipe in the city. Media reports say a child was among those who died. The victims have not been identified and at least three other persons were taken to hospital. A criminal case has been opened against the facility, on the grounds of failure to meet health and safety requirements.
