Fire at Bangladeshi Textile Mill Kills 54


Prime Minister Khaleda Zia has named a committee to conduct an investigation into the fire at a textile factory in southeastern Bangladesh that killed at least 54 people.

On Friday, the prime minister went to the port city of Chittagong to visit the factory site. She also went to a hospital where some of the injured are being treated.

About 500 people were inside the factory at the time of Thursday's fire, mostly women working the evening shift. Many escaped, but more than 100 people were injured.

Textile factories in Bangladesh are plagued by accidents caused by poor safety practices. Earlier this month, at least five people died in a fire at a textile mill near the capital, Dhaka.

Matiur Rahman Choudhury has more on the story.
