Video of Shanghai Skyscraper Inferno

A huge fire has broken out in a 30-storey Shanghai building at about 2pm local time (06000GMT), killing at least 12 people.

It was reported that more than 80 fire engines were at the scene trying to control the fire. The cause of the blaze is unclear, but construction scaffolding around the building caught fire first, and flames then spread to the main building, which has about 500 apartments.
