    In a release, the Indian Mission in Khartoum said 16 Indians were missing after the incident that occurred at Seela Ceramic Factory in Bahri area in Khartoum on Tuesday.

    It added that some of the missing may be in the list of dead as identification was not possible because of the bodies being burnt. The Mission yesterday issued a detailed list of Indian nationals who were hospitalised, those missing or survived the tragedy.

    Seven people have been hospitalised, with four in a critical condition. Thirty-four Indians who survived have been accommodated at the Saloomi Ceramics Factory residence.
