Deadly fire rages through Moscow shopping mall

STORY: The fire spread over an area of about 17 000 sq m (182,000 sq ft) in the Mega shopping center in Khimki near the Russian capital, authorities said. One person died in the fire, authorities say.

Mega had been home to a large number of Western retail chains before the companies' departure from Russia in the wake of the Ukraine conflict, including one of the first IKEA stores in the Moscow area.
