 The police in the United States are looking for someone or some people who are believed to have set a house on fire in Denver, Colorado, on Wednesday, killing five members of a family with ties to the West

African country of Senegal. The victims included two young children.

At a news conference on Friday, the Denver police announced a $14,000 reward for information leading to an arrest. Senegal’s representative to the United Nations, who attended the press conference, said he was saddened by the loss of lives.

“Beyond the money, what I’m asking for is a heartfelt plea,” Division Police Chief Joe Montoya said. “I want people to look into their hearts … and understand that this was a family that was thriving. They were heading the right direction.”

The victims included Djibril and Adja Diol, and their 3-year-old daughter Kadidia, and Hassan Diol and her infant daughter, Hawa Beye.

Djibril Diol, his wife, daughter, sister and niece were killed in the fire.

Dectives assigned to the case said they still do not have any suspects and don’t know if the crime was bias-related.
