The parents of New Zealand triplets killed in a fire at a Qatar shopping mall are numbed by the tragedy, the toddlers' grandparents say. The family has confirmed that two-year-old Lillie, Jackson and Willsher Weekes died along with 16 other people after fire broke out at the Villaggio mall in Doha on Monday. The triplets had been at a childcare centre on the first floor of the complex. Their grandfather Ron Turner has told Radio New Zealand his daughter Jane had called him with the terrible news. He says Jane and her husband Martin are numbed by the loss. The children had been attending the centre for two or three months.
