More than 100 people are now known to have died in a fire that swept through a clothes factory in Bangladesh.

The blaze broke out late on Saturday in the multi-floor Tazreen Fashion factory in the Ashulia district on the outskirts of the capital Dhaka.

The fire began on the ground floor of the seven-storey building, and spread quickly, trapping many workers.
