Seven apparel industry workers were killed and more than 15 injured when a fire swept through the Smart Export Garment Ltd. factory in Mohammadpur in the western part of Dhaka, Bangladesh, on Saturday. All of those killed were women and four were teenagers, according to police officials.
The Institute for Global Labour and Human Rights said the workers were crushed to death as they raced to escape the flames at the factory, which is housed on the second floor of a two-story building.
