(01-11 12:22)

Three American retirees, a South Korean and two Filipino women are among six who have died in Manila when a fire razed a small hotel near a former US naval base in Philippines.
Media reports in Manila citing officials said one of the Americans was trapped on a staircase and the two others died in their rooms early today in Olongapo city.
The pre-dawn blaze was at the Dryden hotel in the northern port's entertainment district, AFP reports.
An official said the area has a fairly large population of retired American servicemen. They settled in and around Olongapo after the US military pulled out of the nearby Subic Naval Base in 1991.
One of the victims is said to be a man in his 80s.
