Fatoumatta Hydara, 28, died on Tuesday morning following the attack at her flat on Sunday
A woman who was seriously injured in an arson attack in Nottingham which killed her two children, has died, Nottinghamshire Police said.
Nottinghamshire Police said Fatoumatta Hydara, 28, died on Tuesday morning after being taken to Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham following the arson attack at her flat in Clifton on Sunday.
Ms Hydara’s children Naeemah Drammeh, one, and Fatimah Drammeh, three, died at the same hospital shortly after arrival on Sunday.
A joint fire and police investigation concluded the fire at the flat in Fairisle Close, Clifton, was started deliberately and a triple murder investigation has been launched.

Ms Hydara had been on life support after the blaze in the early hours of Sunday.
A 31-year-old man from Clifton who was arrested on Sunday night remains in custody and police have been awarded an additional 36 hours to interview him.
Detective Chief Inspector Mark Sinski, who is leading the investigation, said specialists would continue to examine the scene for some time and asked for privacy for the family.
He added: “This has been an extremely traumatic event for them, and I’d like to reassure them we’re doing everything we possibly can to bring them the justice they deserve.”
Ms Hydara’s husband Aboubacarr Drammeh flew back to the UK from the US to visit his wife in hospital and told journalists he had not started to come to terms with what had happened.
