Second Bangladesh Factory Fire

Bangladeshi onlookers watch as firefighters try and control a fire that broke out at a garment factory on the outskirts of Dhaka on November 26, 2012. Bangladesh firefighters quelled a new blaze at a garment factory as the country mourned the death of 110 workers in a weekend blaze at an apparel plant, the export industry's worst-ever accident. The latest fire caused widespread damage at the plant on the outskirts of the capital Dhaka, but no casualties were reported after rescue teams searched the building for workers feared to have suffocated in toxic black fumes.

    A blaze broke out in a Bangladeshi garment factory Monday, injuring eight. The fire comes only days after an inferno blazed through a separate multistory garment factory, killing 123 people and sparking outrage across the country. Many of the country’s 4,500 garment factories have few protections against fires. Workers marched in protest Monday, demanding action after the more than 120 deaths outside Dhaka, the capital. Two hundred factories were closed as the workers protested, and some of the demonstrations are reported to have turned violent as angry employees threw rocks and blocked roadways.
