A dead woman and five children and three adults injured by burns was the outcome of the attack with a Molotov cocktail at the chapel of St. Martin’s funeral home Monday morning. The funeral home was destroyed.
The attack took place at about 10:30 a.m. when mourners were paying their last respects to a man shot to death last Saturday, authorities said.
Criminals arrived on the scene and threw a bottle with gasoline. One of the unconfirmed versions says that the attack was direct against the children’s mother.
The five children and three adults suffered burns of first and second degree.
The woman was sprayed gasoline and set on fire. She died while the others suffered burns.
After the attack residents from the area came to smother the flames with extinguishers. Three ambulances went to the scene to treat the injured and transport them to a hospital for treatment of emergency.
