Two 16-year-old boys were charged with murder on Thursday in connection with a fire that killed 21 children and two teachers at the Darul Quran Ittifaqiyah tahfiz school. They were also charged with drug abuse along with four other suspects. Police believe the fire was deliberately started using gas canisters after the suspects had a disagreement with the school's pupils.
