Some 130 people are still hospitalized, with around 90 in either a critical, or serious condition.
AP is reporting on Tuesday that a 28-year-old woman who had burns to about 50 percent of her body died this morning, bringing the death toll to 32.
The fire broke out at the Colectiv nightclub during a heavy-metal rock concert. Witnesses said a spark during a pyrotechnics show ignited foam decor in the basement club, AP reported.
Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic on Saturday sent a letter of condolences to his Romanian counterpart Victor Ponta over the victims of explosion and fire that occurred in a club in Bucharest, the Serbian government website said.
“We were deeply shaken by the news of explosion and fire that occurred during a concert in a club in Bucharest, in which young people lost lives and many were seriously wounded. In such tragic moments, it is difficult to find words of condolence. On behalf of the Serbian government and my own, I extend my deepest condolences to you, the government of Romania and the families that lost their beloved ones”, Vucic wrote.
