    Murder Charges in Pakistan Fires

    Charges have been filed in Pakistan against the owners of a garment factory where over 200 people were killed in a fire on Wednesday. The case has been filed against the owners and members of management of Ali Enterprises, which operates a retail factory that saw 289 people perish when a blaze tore through the building during an evening shift. Officials say the building was in poor condition and had no emergency exits, forcing dozens of workers to jump from upper-story windows while others were trapped in the burning basement. In the city of Lahore the same day, 25 were killed in a fire at a shoe factory.
