Honduras families want inquiry into jail fire

A year after a prison fire killed 362 people, relatives remain without a clear explanation as to what happened.

    Hundreds of inmates died in a fire in an overcrowded jail in Honduras one year ago.

    A total of 362 people died in the blaze at the Comayagua jail, two were women visiting prisoners while the rest were inmates.

    Living conditions in the prison remain little changed and a group of relatives of those killed is demanding a clear explanation as to what happened.

    Al Jazeera's Mariana Sanchez reports from the prison.
