The owner of a daycare centre in Qatar in which 13 children - including triplets from New Zealand - died in a fire has appeared in a Doha court. The fire, in the Villagio Mall on May 28, claimed the lives of 19 people in all, including two-year-old Kiwi triplets Lillie, Jackson and Willsher Weekes. Criminal proceedings had been delayed four times after the Gympanzee daycare facility's owner, Iman Al Kuwari, failed to turn up to the court hearings.
