I hope this is literally a false alarm, but I heard a rumor that the Turkish-run school Kharisma Bangsa in Pondok Cabe, Tangerang caught fire. I even heard there were fatalities, but don't see anything in the news -English or Indonesian. Does anyone know what, if anything happened there? I heard it was just in the last day or so. Sad

Twenty-four hours and no response. Perhaps it isn't true?

I have searched the web in English and Indonesian and I have found nothing. However, i know that even a major event like an earthquake or volcano does not appear on Google for hours sometimes.

I know some teachers and students there, but it would be awkward to ask them, I think. So please if anyone can confirm either way: if there was a fire or if there was not, I would appreciate very much if you could respond to my question - either here or in a PM. Thanks very much.

Rat, I ran a google search for "Sekolah Kharisma Bangsa terbakar" and got absolutely no relevant result, and I'm in Medan.

I'd guess that what you heard did not actually happen, either that or it must have been a pretty minor affair (dorm fire, quickly put out, or something like that).

Who is the greater fool-he who tells or he who listens? Wink As stated on a recently resurrected thread-unfounded gossip is rife in Indonesia...
