Bangladesh Factory Blaze Kills 121

DHAKA: The death toll from a fire at a Bangladeshi factory soared to at least 121 as rescue workers recovered 112 bodies Sunday, the national fire chief told AFP.

“We’ve found 112 dead bodies this morning,” fire brigade director general Brigadier General Abu Nayeem Mohammad Shahidullah told AFP.

“We resumed our search this morning and found the bodies lying on different floors of the factory building,” he said.

The fire broke out in the ground-floor warehouse of the multi-storey Tazreen Fashion factory 30 kilometres (18 miles) north of Dhaka on Saturday evening, trapping hundreds of workers on the upper floors, police said.

Police inspector Mostofa Kamal had previously told AFP that nine workers died and about 100 workers were injured.

Kamal said many workers jumped from the factory’s upper floors to escape the flames before firefighters arrived to put the blaze out.

The cause was not immediately known but fires as a result of short circuits and shoddy electrical wiring are common in Bangladeshi garment plants, which use cheap labour to produce clothes shipped to Western countries.

Re: Bangladesh Factory Blaze Kills 121

rich owners couldnt' give a fuck i'm sure.

Bangladesh has some 4,000 garment factories, many without proper safety measures.

The country annually earns about $20 billion from exports of garment products, mainly to the United States and Europe.

Relatives of the factory workers were frantically looking for their loved ones. Sabina Yasmine said she saw the body of her daughter-in-law, who died in the fire, but had no trace of her son, who also worked at the factory.

“I want the factory owner to be hanged. For him, many have died, many have gone.”

Firefighters recovered 69 bodies from the second floor of the factory alone.

He said most of the victims had been trapped inside the factory, located just outside of Dhaka, with no emergency exits leading outside the building.

Bangladesh’s garment factories make clothes for brands including Wal-Mart, JC Penney, H&M, Marks & Spencer, Carrefour and Tesco.

More than 300 factories near the capital shut for almost a week earlier this year as workers demanded higher wages and better working conditions.
Trapped in a oven.

Probably making the Aeropostale, Hurley, or Affliction brands that everyone thinks are so high society these days. Now that's a sweat shop!

Those two pervs are thinking of what they could do to the dead woman.

As if she'd look at them while alive!

Senseless death. No emergency exits? Rats trapped in a burning box for pennies a day

The have arrested 3 men for locking the workers inside!

They found merchandise for at least three suppliers, whose names escape me.
