    Bangladeshi authorities on Wednesday arrested three factory owners for a fire over the weekend that killed over 100 people. The supervisors are charged with stopping workers from leaving and blocking the exits. The owner of the factory, Delwar Hossain, took responsibility for the fire, telling the Daily Star newspaper on Thursday that “nobody told me that there was no emergency exit, which could be made accessible from the outside.
