The chief minister of the state of West Bengal, Mamata Banerjee, hods a candle as she pay her respects to the people who lost their lives in the recent fire at the Advanced Medicare And Research Institute (AMRI) hospital in Kolkata, on December 12, 2011. Nearly 90 people were killed when a fire engulfed patients at a hospital on December 9 in the eastern Indian city of Kolkata, with officials accusing senior staff of abandoning those in their care.
