At least 25 students and teachers have died in a fire at a religious school in Malaysia's capital, Kuala Lumpur.

The fire at the Tahfiz Darul Quran Ittifaqiyah broke out in the early hours of the morning.

"The number of confirmed dead are 23 students and two wardens," Khirudin Drahman, director of the fire and rescue department has said.

The ages of the students killed were not immediately clear. But Islamic tahfiz schools - where children study the Koran - usually take children aged between five and 18.
