Italy factory fire kills seven
At least seven people have died and two are badly injured after fire swept through a Chinese-owned clothing factory in the Italian town of Prato.
The blaze broke out in a loft where 11 people were sleeping, causing part of the roof to collapse, fire officials said.
The cause of the fire is being investigated.
Prato, in Tuscany, has become a centre for Chinese-run factories producing low-cost garments.
