A fire at a drug rehabilitation centre in the Peruvian capital Lima has killed 14 people - the second such tragedy there this year.

The blaze broke out at the Sacred Heart of Jesus centre in eastern Lima in the early hours of the morning.

Fire-fighters said patients could not escape because the doors were locked and the windows barred.

In January a fire at another drug and alcohol clinic in Lima killed 29 people who were also locked inside.
