Live news updates: A fire ripped through a three-storey commercial building near Mundka metro station in west Delhi Friday evening, leaving at least 26 dead and more than 40 suffering burns, police said. 

Around 60-70 people have been rescued from the building, the police said, adding some people are still trapped inside. According to fire department officials, information about the blaze was received around 4.40 pm following which 24 fire tenders were rushed to the spot. 

Sri Lanka's main opposition party joined anti-government protesters on Friday in rejecting the appointment of a new prime minister, and insisted the president resign because of the country's disastrous economic crisis.
