The death toll from a fire at a nightclub in Romania has risen to 32 after a 28-year-old woman died of injuries she sustained during the blaze in Bucharest.

Medical authorities said the woman, who had burns to about 50% of her body, died at St Pantelimon hospital. She was one of five patients in a serious or critical condition at the hospital.

Some 130 people remain in hospital, of whom about 90 are in a critical or serious condition, after fire engulfed the Colectiv nightclub on Friday evening during a heavy-metal rock concert.

Witnesses said a spark during a pyrotechnics show ignited foam in the basement club.
