Factory Fire Results In Over 100 Deaths

| No Comments

A factory fire in Bangladesh over the weekend resulting in over 100 deaths appears to be caused by arson, Farid Ahmed reported.

Bangladesh's prime minister, Sheikh Hasina, declared the fire on Saturday and a different fire at another factory are both cases of "planned arson". Two were arrested in suspicion of the fire, but authorities have yet to make a connection that ties them to the arson.

The clothing factory, which is a supplier for Wal-Mart, caught fire in the Bangladeshi capital of Dhaka. There were 200 people injured in addition to the 100 deceased, Ahmed reported.

"How the factory caught fire, I don't know. But when we heard 'fire,' we all rushed out and we were trying to get out of the factory," said Parul Begum, a survivor.
