Factory fire kills 24 in Bangladesh

“The fire is still raging... firefighters are trying to douse the huge blaze,” an official monitoring the fire said.

Television channels reported that at least 24 people died and more than 50 others were trapped on the roof of the factory at the Ashulia Industrial Zone in Savar sub-district on the outskirts of capital Dhaka.

However, a spokesman of the Ha-Meem Group factory said: “Twelve bodies have so far been recovered from inside the factory and the salvage campaign is still underway.”
