Thirteen Pakistanis, including eight children, were killed in a fire in Jordan.

A fire swept through their makeshift homes on a farming estate in the Jordan Valley, Jordan’s civil defence said according to Reuters news agency.

Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi confirmed the news to SAMAA TV. He remarked that he has contacted the Pakistani ambassador in Amman.

The majority of the workers belonged to the same family, the federal minister said. “They were all living together at a farmhouse.”

The bodies have been identified and we have contacted the deceased’s families too.

“We are praying for the deceased and will do as much as possible for their families,” Qureshi added.

Three other people were injured in the fire that broke out after midnight. Civil defence spokesman Iyad al Amre said in a statement that there are signs that it was an electrical fire.
