The death toll from last week's fire on Kornat island in Croatia has risen to eight. Two firefighters, Tomislav Crvelin and Ante Crvelin, badly injured by the fire, have died.

Three firefighters are still in serious condition at the Zagreb hospital. A 17-year-old was also among the casualties.

The fire was started by a cigarette thrown by a Kornati National Park employee, who is now in custody.
